Abstract : A methodology for designing simulators to model the combined effects of both airblast induced and direct induced ground shock is presented. The report describes how to combine the HEST and DIHEST to make a combined effects simulator. In addition to discussing a general methodology, the report describes how a specific combined effects simulator (CDC-2) was designed. A Combined Effects Simulator (CES) is an array of high explosives that has been designed to simulate, in a prescribed manner, the total nuclear environment either at a particular point, or in a global sense. The nuclear environment can be conveniently broken down into three basic components; each component is usually simulated with a particular type of simulator and, thus, the CES is truly a combination of both effects and simulators. The effects and most common simulator used to produce the effects are: Local Airblast. Upstream Airblast. Source Induced Motions. (JHD)
