The problems dealt with in this report are the behavior of the explosive gases behind a plane and spherical detonation wave in a condensed solid explosive Pentolite. The analysis is numerical and considerable detail is given to the development of the computer programs which appear in the Appendix. The boundary conditions are obtained from the analysis of Pentolite by Shear, which also furnishes the equation of state for the explosive products. Comparison is made with classical mathematical results based on a similarity assumption and credited to G. I. Taylor.
