Abstract
This report describes a blast-wave density measuring system which was utilized during a large-scale TNT explosion in the summer of 1968. The theory of radio-active particle emission, absorption and detection (by a scintillator-photomultiplier combination) is outlined, since this forms the basis of the measuring system.
