Abstract:

Gas dynamic properties which include the effects of dissociation and intermolecular forces van der Waals are presented for incident and reflected shock waves in equilibrium imperfect nitrogen. Charts are presented for incident shock Mach numbers in the range from 1 to 10 into ideal nitrogen at a temperature of 300K and pressures in the range from 0.0001 to 1000 cm Hg. The temperature and density in any region do not exceed, respectively, 15,000K and 1000 amagats. In addition to the usual incident and reflected shock properties, stagnation conditions upstream and downstream and conditions immediately downstream of a standing shock wave are also presented. At pressures above one atmosphere in the undisturbed gas, the effects of the intermolecular forces on the gas dynamic properties are demonstrated.
