The effect of seeding shock waves with alkali metal smoke is studied. The pressure, density, temperature ratio, electron density, and conductivity were calculated with a digital computer and tabulated for various combinations of gas and Seeding material. A hydrogen-driven shock tube was constructed to measure the properties of the seeded gas behind the shock wave. The conductivity of argon seeded with cesium was measured with a conductivity probe and compared with theoretical calculations.
