ABSTRACT

Final Report: Damage to the Basic Chemical Industry from Nuclear Attack and Resulting Requirements for Repair and Reclamation   [open pdf - 11MB]

"The continued survival of the population after a nuclear attack is closely related to the economic and technological recovery of the country. The basic elements of survival during the recovery period are dependent on the capability of a number of basic industries to survive or, at least, recover quickly 1ron the effects of the attack. Since chemicals are used in almost all phases of material production and product manufacture, the chemical industry will have an especially important role in post attack recovery. In recognition of the importance of the basic chemical industry in the post attack period, the Office of Civil Defense and Stanford Research Institute have funded the present study to examine damage to the industry following nuclear attack."
