Little is known of the effects of combined blast and thermal loading on structures within an explosive fireball. This paper documents and discusses results from temperature, flux, strain and pressure gauges within a fireball of a con-ventional open arena trial using a 41kg TNT equivalent yield explosive. Plans to simulate an intense thermal fireball environment using a bespoke thermal tile are outlined.
