Abstract : Topics which are covered in this report are: (1) a study of separated hypersonic flows produced by cavities in cone-cylinder models; (2) measurements in a small, low density plasma jet wind tunnel; (3) running time and shock wave attenuation studies in a shock tube; (4) a derivation of an energy balance equation for determining the electron temperature in a nonequilibrium plasma; and (5) a calculation of the rate of three-body electron-ion recombination, using a simple classical model.
