Abstract
For the past decade, the Defence Research Establishment Suffield has been conducting a program of basic research into the characteristics of the blast wave from chemical explosions. The work has been carried out using large (1,000 - 1,000,000 lb) TNT charges of various configurations detonated under free-field conditions. Details will be given in the paper of the experimental methods used in the work as well as details of the analysis techniques developed for extracting the desired quantitative information from the photographic records.
