This book provides some insight into cosmic, terrestrial, and man-created explosions and blast-wave phenomena. It discusses the properties, as well as analytical and physical characteristics of planar, cylindrical, and spherical blast waves. It contains many examples of peaceful applications of explosives and shock waves and describes in detail devices in which such phenomena are studied in laboratory environments.... layer 158, 159 helium glass-sphere explosions using 269a70, 271-2 ionizing- argon shock structure affected by 444, 447 ...  shock-pressure ratio in water 283, 284 helium/air combination advantage in production of strong shock waves 55, ... 529 schematic diagram of interferometer 528 homentropic flows, characteristic curves 23, 24 hot-gas regions 56-7 1 ... combination hypervelocity gun tunnel 512-16 see also UTIAS/RPI hypervelocity gun tunnel hypervelocity launchers 1anbsp;...
