Availability Notice


CSQ is a well-tested and versatile wave propagation computer program, a modified version of which has been used to perform a number of USNRC-supported analyses of detonations of hydrogen-air mixtures in nuclear reactor containment buildings. The modifications, from a user's viewpoint, are fairly minor, and this version of CSQ is being prepared for release to interested organizations. This report documents the use of CSQ in this form. as well as certain codes which aid in performing the detonation calculations.
