Pagination or Media Count:
The report presents a description and evaluation of experimental self-recording pressure-time gages and triaxial accelerometers tested during Operation Snowball, an air blast experiment conducted at Suffield Experimental Station, Alberta, Canada. Values of shock overpressure, duration of positive phase of the shock wave, and impulse derived from the records of these gages are compared to graphs of similar parameters plotted from measurements obtained by Project 1.1 which was responsible for making primary measurements of the air blast parameters.
