Abstract:

This report presents an application of the theories developed in Part I to guns ranging in diameter from .30 caliber to 8 inches. Agreement between theory and experiment is good over the entire diameter range for the blast field overpressure. The theory was also applied to a 105mm howitzer of different loadings with equally good results. A different approach for determining the pulse length is presented. As with the data in Part I, the scatter is sufficiently large that no firm conclusions can be drawn concerning the validity of the approach.
