Abstract:

A parametric study was made on the performance of a conical discharge shock generator. From these studies it was possible to formulate general ground rules to be followed in designing a shock tube of this type capable of producing a single high velocity shock at gas pressures varying from 25 - 2000 micron. Typically, shocks of M sub s - 150 were produced in D sub 2 at 100 micron pressure. Author
