A great number of pressure-time curves measured in shock waves arising from underwater explosions show the existence of a well-defined pressure “shadow and light region”, bounded by a strong pressure gradient between the two regions, at the diffraction of the shock waves by a semi-infinite plane situated in the entrance from a channel into a water-filled tank. Through the modification of a method for direct solution of the diffraction problems by pressure waves in air, introduced by Friedlander, it has been found possible to extend the method also to comprise the calculation of the pressure variation in the wave system arisen by diffraction of weak underwater shocks. A good accordance between the theoretical and the experimental values is given.
