Abstract
In many instances, extensive blast-wave flow-field properties are required in gasdynamics research studies of blast-wave loading and structure response, and in evaluating the effects of explosions on their environment. The report provides a very useful computer code, which can be used in conjunction with the DNA Nuclear Blast Standard subroutines and code, to quickly reproduce complete blast-wave data for almost any spherical (or free-air) nuclear explosion. Included with the program output of the major flow properties as functions of radius and time are further information regarding air viscosity, reflected shock-wave properties, and the initial decay of the flow properties just behind the shock front. The code can reproduce both spatial distributions for a given time as well as temporal histories for a specified radius, for all the major flow properties. TRUNCATED
