Abstract : A two-ton TNT blast directing experiment simulated the air blast, over a limited area, from a larger yield hemispherical HE detonation. Several individual charges weighing 33 pounds were distributed over a semi-circular disk 37.5 feet in radius. The air blast was measured by total and side-on pressure gages placed in the one-dimensional flow region and beyond. Ground motion induced by the air blast was also measured. The experimental results were correlated with smaller yield blast directing data and theoretical prediction, and compared with data from larger yield HE hemispheres. (Author)
