Abstract: The paper presents results of experimental investigations and model
analysis concerning the expansion of explosively produced water-spray cloud. The
regular shape of water-spray cloud produced by a charge placed in a bag flled with
water is attained. Effective dispersion of bags containing 600 up to 1500 litres of
water is attained. The rise and deceleration of external zone of water-spray cloud
is described analytically. The parameters of pressure feld evolving around the
explosively formed spray cloud were registered.

Keywords: explosion, water aerosol production, shock wave parameters
