A review is given of papers presented at the subject Symposium, which was held in Stockholm, Sweden, 23-26 May 1977. Principal emphasis in the review is placed on advances in shock tube design, new instrumentation, and the use of scale models in blast research. Several short shock-tubes driven by sources in parallel are described, and the success of cube-root scaling of magazine explosions and blast cratering is discussed.
