Abstract:

Experimental air radiation intensity measurements were taken in the stagnation region of high velocity models. The models used were copper-clad nylon spheres. Initial range conditions varied in velocity from 16,000 to 19,000 feet per second, and in pressure from 8 to 24 torr. Radiation measurements were taken over narrow 20A bands in the spectrum from 2750 to 5900 angstroms. The experimental values were in close agreement with theoretical predictions. Author
