Working Group on Atmospheric Blast Effects

Chair: Michael J. White

Vice-Chair: Joel Kalb

Scope: Development and maintenance of standards to provide methods for determining blast wave characteristics for single point or spherical explosions, estimating the variations of characteristics caused by the atmospheric medium of propagation, and predicting the expected effects on populations and structures. Liaison with the corresponding ISO standards groups. Coordination of the US vote on related or parallel international standards. Responsible for the following published standard:
