Calculating pressur produced by explosion

  1. Sep 13, 2008 #1
    Hello friends,

    Iam new to this site and I hope I didn't post this form in the wrong location.

    I would like to know how to calculate pressure produced by explosion?

    To make it clear, here is an example:

    A metal box with volume = 10cm^3. There is, lets say, gas fuel with know quantity in the box. The box have one side built with wood. So when I ignite the fuel, how much pressure will it produce to the wood?

    What I am guessing, the important data we must have are;
    1. Box volume.
    2. fuel to air ratio.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you so much,
