|Publication Date:||1 July 1984|
a. This series of manuals, entitled Designing Facilities to Resist Nuclear Weapon Effects, is organized as follows:
TM 5-858-1 Facilities System Engineering
TM 5-858-2 Weapon Effects
TM 5-858-3 Structures
TM 5-858-4 Shock Isolation Systems
TM 5-858-5 Air Entrainment, Fasteners, Penetration Protection, Hydraulic-Surge Protective Devices, EMP Protective Devices
TM 5-858-6 Hardness Verification
TM 5-858-7 Facility Support Systems
TM 5-858-8 Illustrative Examples
A list of references pertinent to each manual is placed in an appendix. Additional appendixes and bibliographies are used, as required, for documentation of supporting information. Pertinent bibliographic material is identified in the text with the author's name placed in parentheses. Such bibliographic material is not necessary for the use of this manual; the name and source of publications related to the subject of this manual is provided for information purposes.
b. The purpose of this series of manuals is to provide guidance to engineers engaged in designing facilities that are required to resist nuclear weapon effects. It has been written for systems, structural, mechanical, electrical, and test engineers possessing state-of-the-art expertise in their respective disciplines, but having little knowledge of nuclear weapon effects on facilities. While it is applicable as general design guidelines to all Corps of Engineers specialists who participate in designing permanent military facilities, it has been written and organized on the assumption a systems-engineering group will coordinate design of the facilities.
