Document Type: Journal Paper


Examination of dynamic behavior of soil when subjected to air blast loading; empirical method for predicting resulting ground displacement; computation of vertical displacement at particular time; horizontal displacement is based on assumption that entire pressure wave passes through given soil stratum at constant velocity and inclination; emphasis is placed on procedures for determining pertinent physical properties of real soils.
