Rapid growth in computational capacity facilitates structural mechanics specialist to facilitate numerical simulation of complex explicit dynamics of detonation shock dynamics and explosive analysis. An attempt is made depict shock wave propagation behaviour and variation of its mechanical properties along the radial line of spherical shaped high explosives in the water domain. JWL equation of state for expansion of detonating products after explosion has been studied for several high explosives and simplified approach with PVγ form has been suggested to reduce complexity of calculation and computational time for underwater explosion phenomenon. Near-field effects cause severe effects on the structures leading to the local deformation and hazard to structure while with the spatial distance away from the explosive centre explosion effects reduces due to expansion of detonating products. There is strong need to segregate such effects to find the vulnerability of structures depending upon target structure distance from explosive centre. Typical spherical high explosives have been studied with variation of charge radius employing homogeneous and heterogeneous explosive model to study such behaviour. Successful criteria to distinguish near-field and far-field effect are evolved after parametric study. All the results with consolidated comparison are presented in this paper. © 2020 Karabuk University
