Abstract:

Practical formulas are given for solving the problem of the distribution of the temperature and concentration of the components of dissociating air in the non-equilibrium zone beyond the steep leading edge of a shock wave in rarefied air. The question of the dissociation of oxygen and nitrogen, and the relationship between the temperature beyond the edge of the wave and the wave velocity and gas density is also examined. Author
