Abstract
Results from the Canadian air-blast measurements for Event MIXED COMPANY are presented. Event MIXED COMPANY was the third shot in the MIDDLE NORTH series of free-field high-explosive blast trials, and was carried out on 13 November 1972. The results obtained were quite close to the predicted values; however three large fireball anomalies to the west of the Canadian sector resulted in slightly off-axis flow through the Canadian sector and peak overpressures slightly higher than the values obtained using shock front velocity measurements.
