Abstract : The principal results of idealized blast wave theory are presented and then extended to include the effects of ionization and radiation. The conditions required to maintain blast wave dynamic similarity with radiation are set forth. Electron density and continuum radiation are determined as a function of position behind a blast wave for the plain, cylindrical and spherical cases. (Author)
