This report, in the field of Blast and Shock Biology, is part of an
interspecies approach to the problem of accurate prediction of human
tolerance to air blast.
It presents the results of an experiment in which 27 cattle were ex-
posed to "sharp"-rising reflected pressures of 184-msec duration in an
air-driven shock tube. The results apply directly to animals with 180-kg
body weight exposed side-on against a surface to reflected pressures of
"long" duration and are only indirectly applicable to data from other pres-
sure-time waveforms or other animal species.
This information may be useful in military, industrial, and agricul-
tural situations involving potential exposure of men and domestic animals
to air blast.
Here’s what’s next.
