This paper describes the results of shock pressure measurements in the range of 1–25 MPa in water and in the range of 60–500 kPa in air. Pressure pulses were generated by exploding wire technique and measured with a quartz piezo-electric transducer. The attenuation with distance of shock overpressure, impulse and energy in shock front has been studied. Experimental data on shock attenuation in air is scarce and the results presented here confirm the attenuation behaviour derived from theoretical considerations.
