A relatively simple model has been developed for the prediction of pressure response within a one room structure subjected to air blast. The model is based on an acoustic analysis and a room fill model. These models have been combined, together with a model for the entering diffracted shock, to produce a model which can predict the pressure-time response at any spatial location within the room. Good agreement is obtained when the model predictions are compared with measurements obtained from full scale field tests and scaled shock tube tests.
