Abstract:

The purpose of the investigation was to formulate a theoretical explanation of the nature and propagation characteristics of atmospheric pressure pulses generated by nuclear explosions. The most significant development was the determination of the pressure wave form at a great distance from an explosive source. Numerical and analytic approaches to this problem were considered.
