INDIA: NUCLEAR DEVICE CALCULATIONS (UJ
A recently published paper by three Indian scientists describes the behavior of certaint sufficiently high pressures to interest nuclear weapons designers. This work is likely part of ehe Indian nuclear explosives program. 0 references were included, they were addedevision of the paper. He cannot deternine how nuch earlier the reported work was done.!-
In.. SIkka and R. Chidambaram of the Neutron Physics Division of the Bhabha Atomic Research Centeraper entitled "Model for the Rquation of State of Condensed Matter in the 'Intermediate- Pressure0egion". In this paper, the authors presented their development of an equation-of-state model which approaches the "intermediate" region fron the expertmental (known, low pressure) side. Calculations were done for aluminum and molybdenum. (U)
terapascal, units of pressure.
