Several simple approximations to the peak overpressure between two interacting simultaneous blast waves are explored and compared to the LAMB approximation method for multibursts. The best estimates suggest about a 30 10-50 increase in line-target coverage over that covered by two nonsimultaneous bursts. Coverage is restricted to strong shocks Delta-P 100 psi.
