Abstract:

The characteristics of the so-called sonic bang are briefly reviewed. The desirability, fields of application and advantages of sonic bang simulants are considered and some possible methods of achieving simulation discussed. An account is given of the development of two types of simulant using the principles of the extended explosive charge technique described in Part 1 of this report ERDE 9R68. Their properties are outlined and criteria for their suitability for different types of application are put forward together with the results obtained on applying these criteria to the two types of linear charge simulant developed.
