Abstract:

Tables and diagrams of scaled side-on blast parameters are available for time of shock front arrival, primary shock front overpressure, overpressure impulse and positive duration for cylindrical RDX explosives having length to diameter ratios of 1 and 5. Charges were placed in a vertical, a horizontal and a 60 degrees inclined position to the surface of the ground. Initiation point was at one end. Blast parameters were measured along 9 blast lines at scaled standoffs from 0.5 to 32 mkg to the minus 13 power.
