Abstract : Peak pressure of a shock wave can be measured by a plurality of frangible microspheres of known fracture pressures. The microspheres are sized to be surrounded by the shock wave as the shock wave travels thereby. The microspheres remaining intact after the shock wave passes provide a measure of peak pressure.
