Physics of explosions

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me the forces acting on debris from an explosion, and the types of energy involved??
    id really appreciate emailed answers-my email address is critical_bill13@hotmail.com

    just like wind

    but very high speeds,
    and on some range from the center the speed does not necessarily decrease with distance (in 1/r²) because on reaction and/or heating still going on

    speeds are generated by expansion from chemical reaction and heating
