Blast Wave

A movie showing the effects of blast wave generated by a nuclear explosion.

A fraction of a second after a nuclear explosion, a high-pressure wave develops and moves outward from the fireball. The blast effect of a nuclear explosion is produced by the heating of air by the fireball. Footage from several nuclear tests demonstrate the effects of the blast wave's tremendous force on various vehicles.
