Tolerance indices were determined, allowing for the effects of body mass, for thirteen mammalian species using the results of experiments in which animals were exposed near a normally reflecting surface to shocked blast waves whose durations ranged from 0.24 to 400 msec. A general equation was developed for expressing the interrelations between overpressure, duration of the blast wave, body mass, and probability of survival.
