Bomb - Blast Seat

Blast Seat

In forensic science, the point of detonation of a bomb is referred to as its blast seat, seat of explosion, blast hole or epicenter. Depending on the type, quantity and placement of explosives, the blast seat may be either diffuse or concentrated (i.e., an explosion crater).

Other types of explosions, such as dust or vapor explosions, do not cause craters or even have definitive blast seats.
