A methodology for determining the battlefield airblast threat resulting from small high explosive weapons such as grenades and mines containing a few pounds of high explosives up through large nuclear warheads of the 5 megaton HE equivalent has been outlined. Two animal exposure tests were performed for WRAIR in which animals were exposed to airblasts generated by fuel-air explosives. Pressure profiles were measured at the ranges at which the animals were places. Personnel from WRAIR ran the actual experiments and S-CUBED provided the blastwave environment. Author.
