Scaling Underwater Explosion Shock Waves for Differences in Ambient Sound Speed and Density
NAVAL SURFACE WEAPONS CENTER SILVER SPRING MD

The underwater explosion shock wave similitude equations which describe the variation of peak pressure, decay constant, impulse and energy flux density with distance are rederived to include the effects of ambient sound speed and density. The resulting equations are found to be in good agreement with experimental measurements.
