Neutrons. The initial radiation can be divided into two components, neutrons and gamma rays. As a general rule, the neutron-to-gamma ratio decreases with the range from the weapon’s ground zero. The ratios for vehicles and shelters depend on the specific neutron and gamma protection factors associated with the vehicle or shelter. For a tank, the protection factors are about 2 and 10 for neutrons and gammas, respectively. 5. Residual Radiation. The residual radiation hazard from a nuclear explosion is radioactive fallout and neutron-induced activity.
The principal physical effects of nuclear weapons are blast, thermal radiation (heat), and nuclear radiation. These effects are dependent upon the yield (or size) of the weapon expressed in kilotons (KT), physical design of the weapon (such as conventional and enhanced), and upon the method of employment.
