Abstract:

Airblast was measured from distances of a few hundred feet to about six miles from single one-ton surface, near surface, and buried explosions. Similar measurements were made perpendicular to and off the ends of buried single row-charges detonated simultaneously and with delays between charges in the rows, and buried double-row charges detonated simultaneously and with delays between rows. Explosives were either ammonium nitrate and fuel oil or aluminized ammonium nitrate slurry.
