Abstract
The DRES Blast-Tube facility has been established to allow intermediate-scale blast experiments for the investigation of blast wave flows and the response of structures and materials to blast loading from explosions in air. The Blast Tube is essentially a 50-m length of steel pipe of 1.8-m diameter with one end which tapers down to a 0.45-m closed end cap. A cloud of fuel-air explosive is dispersed within the tube at the closed end and detonated to create a blast wave which travels down the tube to the test section where required measurements are obtained.
