Abstract: One-dimensional wave equations are derived and it is demonstrated that, beyond given distance from surface, intensity of peak stress and particle velocity depends only on single parameter; result is of significance in establishing physical characteristics of granular soils which are subjected to nuclear surfact blast pressures.
