Abstract:

The purpose of the paper is to present a convenient method of calculation for use with chemical kinetics studies in shock tubes. In particular, a system is discussed which may directly be applied to the mixture of nitrogen tetroxide, dioxide and nitrogen under investigation. The treatment is divided as follows 1 shock and equilibrium Hugoniot calculations are presented 2 calculated conditions for the shock tube are compared with those experimentally determined 3 conditions in the chemical relaxation zone are calculated assuming a known reaction rate law 4 a method for direct calculation of rate constants from the absorption traces is presented.
