The Manhattan Project Atomic Bomb Investigating Group
On August eleventh, 1945, two days after the shelling of Nagasaki, a message was dispatched from Major General Leslie R. Forests to Brigadier General Thomas F. Farrell, who was his appointee in nuclear bomb work and was speaking to him in operations in the Pacific, guiding him to sort out an extraordinary Manhattan Project Atomic Bomb Investigating Group. This Group was to secure investigative, specialized and restorative insight in the nuclear bomb field from inside of Japan as quickly as time permits after the discontinuance of dangers. The mission was to consist of three groups:
1. Group for Hiroshima.
2. Group for Nagasaki.
3. Group to secure information concerning general Japanese activities in the field of atomic bombs.
• On the day after the Hiroshima strike, General Farrell got directions from the War Department to take part in a purposeful publicity battle against the Japanese Empire regarding the new weapon and its utilization against Hiroshima
• The battle was to incorporate pamphlets and whatever other purposeful publicity considered suitable. With the fullest collaboration from CINCPAC of the Navy and the United States Strategic Air Forces.
The Nature of an Atomic Explosion
• Characteristics of the Damage Caused by the Atomic Bombs
• Calculations of the Peak Pressure of the Blast Wave
• Long Range Blast Damage
• Ground Shock
• Shielding, or Screening, from the Blast
• Flash Burn
• Characteristics of Injuries to Persons
• Mechanical Injuries
• Blast Injuries
• Radiation Injuries
• Shielding from Radiation
Summary of Damages and Injuries
• Blast, or weight wave, like that of ordinary blasts.
• Primary fires, i.e., those flames began immediately by the warmth emanated from the nuclear blast.
• Secondary fires, i.e., those flames coming about because of the breakdown of structures, harm to electrical frameworks, upsetting of stoves, and other essential impacts of the impact.
• Spread of the first flames (B and C) to different structure
• No harmful amounts of persistent radioactivity were present after the explosions
• The effects of the atomic bombs on human beings
• The effects of the atomic bombs on structures and installations
• The statures of burst were effectively picked having respect to the sort of obliteration it was coveted to bring about.
• The data gathered would empower a sensibly exact expectation to be made of the impact harm prone to be brought on in any city where a nuclear blast could be effected
