Abstract:

The objectives of Project Shock Photography were 1 to augment the data available for the free-air pressure-distance curve, and to investigate the effects of large yields and varying altitudes on scaling and 2 to obtain basic radius-time data in a non-homogeneous atmosphere in order to investigate the effects of a real atmosphere on air shocks resulting from free-air shots. In addition to the required data, shock radius-time data were obtained along the surface, and radius-time data of a cool inner zone within the shock sphere were measured.
