Abstract : In this volume, after a concise introduction in Chapter I, the basic blast wave equations are presented in Chapter II. A novel treatment of the quasi-similar formulation, presenting it as a zero order solution to a double Taylor's series expansion is presented in Chapter III. Applications are then presented in Chapter IV which is divided into six parts. The first two parts include solutions to the adiabatic point explosion problem, the latter being an analytical closed form solution. The third part deals with blast waves in real gases, where the formulation is presented here in more details than that presented in Volume I. Blast waves in a detonating medium is included in the fourth part, with energy added in the front. Blast waves in reactive media where the detonation energy is released in a specially varying fashion, are given in the fifth part. Finally, in the sixth part, the effects of viscosity, heat conduction and radiation on detonation are presented.
