Abstract : HANDEC II was the second shot to combine the High Explosive Simulation Technique (HEST) with the Direct Induced High Explosive Simulation Technique (DIHEST) to simulate the properly time phased airblast-induced and direct-induced ground motions resulting from a nuclear surface burst. Design overpressure of the HEST was 3000 lbs/sq. in. while the DIHEST was similar to that used in DATEX II. Free Field motions were monitored with air pressure, velocity, acceleration and strain transducers. The instrumentation and instrument locations are briefly described along with the test bed geology and layout. All free field data are presented plus integrations of air pressure, velocity and acceleration records. (Author)
