Techniques for using pressure vessels to study the characteristics of shock waves from high explosives detonated under high hydrostatic pressure have provided empirical observations not previously available in the literature. Results indicate that although peak pressure is not affected by hydrostatic pressure, the duration is shortened and the impulse lowered by increasing the hydrostatic pressure. Also, the negative phase of the pressure pulse appears to increase as the ambient pressure increases.
