Abstract:

The available data on gun blasts from naval guns are complied utilizing computer curve fitting techniques. Curves of peak free-air pressure are presented for all naval guns, ranging in size from 20 mm to 16in.50. In addition, curves of arrival time, duration and impulse are given for three of these guns. Development of the computer programs and data reduction methods which were used to model the free-air gun blast field are described. Author
