Peaceful Nuclear Explosions Treaty In preparing the Threshold Test Ban Treaty (TTBT) in Julythe United States and the Soviet Union recognized the need to establish an appropriate agreement to govern underground nuclear explosions for peaceful purposes (PNEs).

The yields of nuclear explosions can be estimated using hydrodynamic methods. The approach that has been proposed by the United States for nuclear test ban monitoring makes use of the fact that the initial speed of the expanding shock wave produced by an underground explosion increases with the yield.
