Abstract : The primary objective of this experiment was to obtain accurate information on the pressure in the shock wave in the free-air region. In particular, it was desired to know the peak pressure as a function of distance in this region. Secondary objectives were to determine the path of the triple point and to determine the peak pressure in the Mach-stem region. Keywords include: NTPR(Nuclear Test Personnel Review), Nuclear explosion testing, Eniwetok Atoll, Blast measurements, and Free-air peak pressure.
