Abstract:

A program has been written for the HP-97 HP-67 minicomputer to solve the blast wave from a nuclear detonation. The program first determines standard-altitude parameters for the altitude of interest. Using these parameters as input, the program then calculates pressures, temperatures, densities, velocities, and Mach Numbers in front and behind the shock. Three subroutines allows the user to input for any altitude or 82,000 ft a specific overpressure across the shock, a specific gust velocity behind the blast wave, or a specific dynamic pressure behind the blast wave. Corresponding parameters for each input are calculated. Author
