When conducting a research concerning the propagation of a shock wave generated by the detonation of civil use explosives, the first thing that comes to mind should be if the detonation process takes place in an obstacle-free field, or the area has obstacles such as rocks, metals structures, wood etc, obstacles that can and will influence the final results, the shock wave curve being obturated by it. On one hand, the paper presents the experimental results obtained after the detonation of a freely suspended load, placed at 0.5m above a concrete surface. On the other hand, it compares the values of explosion pressure as shock wave, measured on 4 sensors linearly disposed at the same elevation to the ground, at a distance of 2,3,4 respectively 6 meters from the explosive charge. These values are determined through computerized simulation, using ANSYS AUTODYN software, by virtually reproducing the real scenario. Following the two experiments (real and virtual), one can conclude that computerized simulation proves to be a very useful instrument in an a priori evaluation of hazardous situations/utility of peak values for shock wave, by allowing the user to develop prevention measures/optimization of the analysed processes and also in further investigations
