The motion of the spherical shock wave and the distribution of the flow quantities behind the wave for the case of a strong shock have been calculated. These have been obtained in the form of similarity solutions, which implies that the form of the disturbance at any time is similar to its form at any previous time. An important feature of the problem is that the similarity solutions at the shock front are only satisfied by the Rankine-Hugoniot relations in the limit of infinite shock strength. The report contains a numerical compilation of functions defining the pressure, density, velocity, and energy within a spherical blast wave. Author
