An experimental investigation has been made of the attenuation of strong shock waves in air in a shock tube. Time-history measurements were made of the static pressure at several stations in the wall of the tube. The internal diameter of the tube is 3.75 inches. shock-wave-velocity data were taken for a distance along the tube of about 120 feet.
