The Soviet program for peaceful uses of nuclear explosions

This paper presents an historical review of the Soviet program to study and utilize industrial applications of peaceful nuclear explosions (PNEs) in the Soviet Union over the period 1965 to 1988 This was a very active program that carried out 122 nuclear explosions to study some 13 applications In all 128 nuclear explosives with yields ranging from 0 01 to 140 kt were used

1 Project Plowshare and 'Education for the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Explosions' "So you want to beat your old atomic bombs into plowshares?" – I I Rabi on hearing Harold Brown's idea to use 'peaceful' 1atomic explosives to "give people a more rational viewpoint" on nuclear

those peaceful-uses arrangements Areas of conflict still exist between the active development of peaceful uses for nuclear explosives and nuclear arms control But the treaty has established new and important ways in which arms control and peaceful uses complement each other and must develop together

Dig into it a little more and you'll learn that starting in the late 1950's the United States studied and conducted tests to evaluate various uses of peaceful nuclear explosions ("PNE") for industrial or civil engineering purposes I assume that this study was a

Peaceful Nuclear Explosions : The USA and Russia have investigated and trialled the use of nuclear explosions for civil engineering purposes though only one significant construction resulted: a dam in Kazakhstan • PNEs will be banned under the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty when it enters into force

A nuclear weapon (also called an atom bomb nuke atomic bomb nuclear warhead A-bomb or nuclear bomb) is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions either fission (fission bomb) or from a combination of fission and fusion reactions (thermonuclear bomb) Both bomb types release large quantities of energy from relatively small amounts of

Nuclear Explosions for Peaceful Purposes

nuclear explosions might be utilized in connection with mining the recovery of petroleum or the storage and gradual use of heat contained in subterranean rock structures The concept of using nuclear explosions for peaceful purposes actually was not new when Project Plowshare was announced in 1958 Toward the end of

Plowshare: A program for the peaceful uses of nuclear explosives The Soviet Union's decision to terminate the three‐year moratorium on nuclear testing by conducting a new series of experimental explosions of nuclear weapons brought an abrupt halt last month to the test‐ban talks in Geneva

Other Uses There are many other potential uses for peaceful nuclear explosions but they have already been used to help excavate large geological areas as well as they have been used to put out gas well or gas field fires [2] Back in 1991 there was a Soviet company who was willing to sell nuclear explosions for peaceful purposes to anybody

Peaceful nuclear explosion Project Plowshare was the overall United States program for the development of techniques to use nuclear explosives for peaceful construction purposes As part of the program 31 nuclear warheads were detonated in 27 separate tests

POSSIBILITIES FOR PEACEFUL NUCLEAR EXPLOSIVES If peaceful uses of nuclear explosives become possible they could offer dramatic benefits This explains the world-wide interest which has been aroused and the investigations being made by the Agency in accordance with references made in the Non-Proliferation Treaty

Civilian users consume far more chemical explosives every year than all the armed forces of the world Nuclear and thermonuclear explosives although ordinarily conceived of in terms of weapons of war are likewise applicable to peaceful uses
