English term or phrase: burster caps
The structure of Scotland’s Secret Bunker was designed with the possibility of nuclear attack in mind and involved a massive engineering task for the contractors. A hole, 135 feet deep, was excavated and then a foundation containing gravel was inserted to form a base or "shock absorber". Thereafter, the building was constructed with an outer shell of 10 feet of solid concrete reinforced every six inches with 1" thick tungsten rods. Finally the whole structure was lined with brick, covered with netting and soaked with pitch to form an outer casing. Spare earth from the excavation was piled on top for added protection, and concrete rafts were layered in the mound to provide "burster caps". It is estimated that there is approximately 40,000 tonnes of concrete in the bunker.
