This report contains a presentation of the air blast parameters, peak overpressure, arrival time, positive duration and impulse versus scaled distances. The values of the parameters are derived from empirical measurements made on a series of tests sponsored under The Technical Cooperation Program TTCP i.e., Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. The measurements were made on 5-, 20-, 100- and 500-ton TNT surface bursts. The charges consisted of small TNT blocks stacked in the shape of a hemisphere.
