Abstract:

This report summarizes the experimental data on air blast generation by detonable gas in balloons from various projects conducted by the staff of the General American Research Division for the Defense Nuclear Agency. Blast data, including peak overpressures, shock wave arrival times, positive phase durations and positive phase overpressure impulses, were gathered from these sources and are condensed and presented, together with descriptions of the balloons and the field operations.
