Abstract:

This study has demonstrated that significant channegnng of air blast does occur in a large number of the generalized valley shapes tested. It must be emphasized, however, that the primary objective of this study was to determine whether significant channeling could occur, and its magnitude. This dictated an approach in which as many valley and charge parameters as possible were sampled within the lietted scope of the program, without attempting to make a complete study of any one specific condition. The raw data obtained during this contract have been analyzed for peak pressure information.
