Abstract : A shield for shielding against radiation from a nuclear blast. The shield is comprised of an aluminum body structure, a tin sheet bonded to the outer surface of the aluminum body structure, a glass filament reinforced epoxy resin matrix composite plastic material wrapped about the tin material and an outer layer of external thermal ablative insulation. The glass filament wrapping of the tin material causes the tin material to act as an effective shielding material by maintaining integrity of the tin when exposed to radiation. (Author)
