Abstract : The objectives of this project were to: (1) measure airblast phenomena in the high-, moderate- and low-pressure regions along a blast line; (2) integrated new data with existing nuclear blast information; and (3) evaluate new types of pressure transducers and recorders for use on nuclear tests. Information which was obtained is contained in the form of tables and graphs. A tabulation indicating success of the instrumentation and a discussion of anomalies is presented.
