Abstract : A suitable and logical index for underwater explosives can be found only by a systematic treatment of the physical phenomena which occur in underwater explosions. Neither a description nor an experimental investigation of these phenomena can supply such an index; only a clear, comprehensive, theoretical investigation of the problem can do so. A mathematical treatment which clearly describes the phenomena of underwater explosions by use of the most simplifying assumptions, and which at the same time gives their development with time in surprisingly good agreement with experimental data, is developed herein.
