Abstract : Four types of standard and developmental filter materials used in individual and collective protective devices and one type of developmental filter material used for the sampling of air for particulate matter were evaluated against the contamination produced by the detonation of an atomic bomb and present in the resulting radioactive cloud. These filter materials were evaluated in multilayer pads at the standard flow rate conditions used by the Chemical Corps in evaluation studies of filter materials. This permitted correlation of results with laboratory data.
