Abstract : Sixteen row-charge cratering experiments using 1-pound charges of C-4 were conducted by the U. S. Army Nuclear Cratering Group at the University of California Lawrence Radiation Laboratory's Site 300. The cratering medium used for these experiments was a carefully controlled, moist, compacted sand. The purpose of these experiments was to investigate the formation phenomenology and crater geometry of a single row of explosive charges. The spacing between individual charges within the row, the depth of burst of the charges, and the row-connection designs were varied to evaluate the effect of these parameters on the resulting row crater configuration.
