To improve the dynamics of the demolition process and to increase the effectiveness of an explosion it is necessary to assure repeated action of the source on the medium due to a change in the internal gas dynamics in the charge hole. This can also be attained by using multi-point initiation of a distributed charge. The authors examine a charge placed in a hole and bounded on one side by a solid plug. They examine the interaction of detonation and shock waves theoretically and experimentally.
