Abstract : Smoke puffs were used in an attempt to measure behavior of the shock wave from Shot 10 at closer distances than those feasible for canister measurements. Errors in delivering the smoke puff canister placed the puffs outside the desired region and complicated the originally planned data reduction system. No significant conclusions may be drawn from the data because of excessive scatter. (Author)
