The article is dedicated to the problem of a point explosion with counterpressure in a quiescent nonviscous and nonheat-conducting ideal gas with the constant adiabatic given exponent. Given pressure and density of the undisturbed gas are considered constants. As a result of numerical solution of this problem, tables of the gas-dynamic functions of a point explosion are calculated. This article presents tables for the flat, cylindrical, and spherical explosions in an ideal gas for the given values equal to 1.3, 1.4, and 53. The tables contain the basic functions describing the field of the gas flow over a wide time span. Also, some possible applications of these tables for solving other problems in the gas-dynamics of explosion and in hypersonic aerodynamics are explained in the introductory section.
