Abstract:

A study was initiated of the changes in conditions near the surface of burning liquid ethyl nitrate following the impact of a weak plane shock wave amplitude 0.5 psi moving in a direction normal to the surface. The technique employed the schlieren photography of a plane probe wave introduced in a direction parallel to the burning surface. The preliminary data obtained suggest an influence on the flame structure by the normal wave between 109 and 230microseconds following the impact. Author
