Abstract:

The principle of operation of the T-type shock tube is discussed in general. A mathematical model of a shock tube of rectangular geometry is proposed, and a theory of performance is developed for this model. A shock tube is constructed so as to produce phenomena which will correlate to the above model. Experiments are performed on the shock tube using hydrogen as the test gas, and the results are compared with theoretical predictions based on the mathematical model. Excellent agreement of the experiments and theory is obtained for low shock velocities. The assumed nature of the current flow in the shock tAuthor
