Peak Overpressure Vs Scaled Distance for TNT Surface Bursts (Hemispherical Charges).


AD443102

Publication Date 1964
Personal Author Kingery, C. N.; Pannill, B. F.
Page Count 27
Abstract This report contains a presentation of peak overpressure versus scaled distance values derived from empirical measurements made by Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. The measurements were made on 5 20- and 100-ton TNT surface bursts. The charges were hemispherical in shape and the instrumentation included overpressure versus time gages and the photooptical shock front velocity technique for determining peak overpressure. (Author)
