Abstract:

Experimental wave data obtained from small scale underwater explosions was analyzed. Consideration was made of all known and available data including those of Project SEAL and others. It was concluded that the only available small-scale field data of sufficient reliability for use in a detailed analysis are those obtained by Waterways Experiment Station scientists in their past and current test series. Accordingly, certain sets of WES data have been analyzed in detail with the major objectives being the investigation of scaling laws and empirical wave height prediction formulae. Author
