Abstract
A breaking pressure of zero is assumed and a model based on spalled layers is proposed to determine the prominent characteristics. Experiments using explosives to produce exponential shock pulses of various peak pressures and characteristic lenghts verify the prominent features of the model. The acoustic effects indicate a breaking tension at least a factor of 10 smaller that that indicated by visible effects.
