Abstract:

Studies were performed in the following areas a two-dimensional and axisymmetric laminar wake stability, b mixing and chemical reactions in a nonequilibrium turbulent wake, c analyses of the properties of schlieren records of turbulent wakes, d analyses of molecular transition probabilities in high temperature gas kinetic collisions, e analyses of shock wave structure in a particle-gas dispersion, f analyses of the rate of burnup of particles behind a moving normal shock wave, g development of a powder injection shock tube facility, h experimental measurements of the rate of burnup of teflon particles behind a normal shock wave in argon, i absorption spectra in shock heated teflonargon and teflonnitrogen mixtures, j experimental measurements of the electrical conductivity of air and air plus teflon mixtures, and k analyses of optical scintillation data from re-entry vehicle tests.
