Abstract:

In this report three problems are solved. First, the problem of a strong blast wave in a homogeneous medium including radiative effects is solved. Second, the problem of a strong blast wave in a slightly inhomogeneous medium including the radiative effects is solved. Finally, these results are used to construct the fireball configuration at pressure equilibrium time. An analysis of the expected errors and the range of applicability is given, along with a discussion of possible applications of the results to the study of fireball phenomenology and its application to military systems analysis.
