Abstract:

An analysis was performed between the Blast wave forms generated by the M198, 155mm howitzer using the M203 charge and the shock tube of the Lovelace Center for Health Sciences. A cross correlation of data indicated a degree of correlation was possible when the total waveform ensemble was investigated. Some questions were raised as to the consistency of Lovelace shock data and its reproducibility. However, the analysis provided a greater data base and an insight of pressure -- time histories from blast overpressures.
