Abstract : J. M. Richardson, A. B. Arons, and R. R. Halverson developed a calculation procedure for determining the hydrodynamic properties of sea water at the front of a shock wave. The procedure has been programmed for the HP41CV, which is a hand-held programmable calculator. The program, which uses 374 lines of code, reproduces the values for a shock wave as tabulated by Richardson, et al. The advantage of the HP41CV program is that properties can be calculated without use of tables.
