Abstract:

Project 1.4 was to measure the maximum size of the underwater explosion bubble and any other bubble size or motion data possible. This was to be done with water-displacement meters at 2000-ft depths located approximately 6000 and 8000 ft from the weapon. This measurement was to be made to make possible, when combined with knowledge of the energy in the shock wave, the calculation of the weapons total energy yield. Author
