The application assesses the consequences of an atomic bomb explosion that happened near you. The boundary of the fracture zones, the maximum diameter of the fireball, the depth and diameter of the funnel, the size of the shock wave, the dose of light radiation and radiation, etc. are calculated. The application can read the results of calculations aloud with text-to-speech engine.
From books, films and courses of Civil Defense, we all know about the severe consequences of the use of nuclear weapons. Both in Russia and in the US there are very similar books, methodologies and posters devoted to measures of survival in conditions of using weapons of mass destruction.
However, the scale of disasters is usually not specified. If in the immediate vicinity of you a bomb falls, what is the power of the shock wave? What will be the depth of the funnel? What dose of radiation will be received in the first minute? For example, if a bomb with a capacity of 100 kilotons exploded in 7 kilometers from you, how much disastrous consequences will it have? What size will the funnel and fireball, after what time will a shock wave come to you and what are the most damaging factors to be feared in the first place?
The application answers these questions. You enter or indicate on the map your position and position of the Ground Zero, the type and power of the explosion, and receive a report on the size of the hazard, the degree of threat from the shock wave, termal and nuclear radiation. It should be noted that these are estimates, they allow us to judge the order of magnitude of the factors and do not give exact values.
You can configure the application to say the report out loud (if the hands or eyes are busy) or send the report by email (If of course the Internet connection is still working)
Just in case, the application can transmit the SOS signal with speakerphone (Morse code). t.
Enter the distance to the Ground Zero, or its location and the position of the Ground Zero on the map, as described below.
Choose the type of explosion - ground or air. In the second case, the application will automatically select the height so that the consequences for you are the worst.
Enter the explosion power in kilotons. Possible values are from 1 to 10 (10 000 )
Press the CALCULATE button
Get the result.
If the sound is turned on, the application will immediately start reading the report. You can stop reading by pressing the HUCH button. You can send someone a report by e-mail
From the main screen, you can open the map by pressing the button MAP.
By clicking SPECIFY POINT button you will open the selection menu. Selecting the point WHERE I AM or WHERE GROUND ZERO and clicking on the map you will expose your location and position of the epicenter, respectively. If you want to set your position according to real GPS data, select SET GPS MYLOCATION. You can drag and drop markers.
When the choice is made, press CLOSE
In the upper right corner there are icons - a question mark, on pressing the help file (this text) opens, and the gear, on pressing the configuration page opens.
The Enable Sound option turns on the automatic reading of the report. The rest of the settings seem to be intuitively clear.
