In this paper a universal model for pressure waves generated by high energy charge explosives and gunshots is developed for determining the pressure vs. Time Profile (P-T curve) at a given point in space which is useful for design and characterization of pressure micro sensors and explosives etc. The simulation of the model is carried out through Virtual Instrumentation (VI) using LabVIEW. The technique used to develop the model, in the present work, is similar to the well known statistical technique of Structural Equation Modeling (SEM).
