Abstract : The theory of oblique shock reflection was applied to the collision of equal underwater shocks of separated explosive spheres. Reflected shock states were calculated to the critical point for Mach wave formation using peak pressure-distance data from the underwater detonation of pentolite and an energy-dependent form of the equation of state of water. Parameters of the reflected wave were obtained for incident shock strengths between 10.3 kbars and 30 bars. (Author)
