Pagination or Media Count:
An approximate procedure is used to predict the effect on air ionization of small amounts of cesium and sodium in the ablating surface material of pointed cones. Ionization is assumed to occur due to finite rate gas phase chemical reactions in the laminar boundary layer. An 11 species N2, O2, N, O, NO, Cs or Na, NO, Cs or Na, O2-, O-, e- 16 reaction chemical system is assumed.
