Abstract:

Free-air blast parameters peak pressure, positive impulse and positive duration from the detonation of spherical 5050 pentolite charges fired at sea level conditions are given as derived from interpolated computer outputs of data given in BRL Report N0. 1092. Data is provided to give direct readouts of values and eliminate the necessity of making calculations for a given test in the field within the limits of the tables and values available.
