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.
