Abstract
Density-time measurements have been made on blast waves produced in the DRES 3 foot diameter, air-driven, blast simulator. Using a radioactive density gauge developed at DRES, measurements were made of density as a function of time in the working section of the simulator as the blast wave passed through. The measured density increase was then used to obtain a density ratio for the initial density increase of the density-time history. The contact surface was detected passing through the working section of the simulator because it caused an abnormal density increase within the blast wave.
