Abstract : JAYCOR examined various pressure-time histories of the M198 Howitzer and the M203 Charge and Shock Tube waveforms. The examination consisted of Correlations of individual shots ensembles, various positions and methods of making a comparison, such as Front-to-Back Correlation, Back-to-Front Correlation and Side-to-Side Correlation. Also addressed in the appendix of the report is a statistical derivation of correlation coefficients, Skewness and Kurtosis. (Author)
