Abstract:

The monograph deals with experimental research into the physical properties of plasma behind powerful shock waves arising during a powerful impulse discharge. The results are presented of experimental studies of the structure of the luminosity front in electromagnetic shock waves, the state of the gas behind a shock wave, the properties of plasma along the discharge chamber, and magnetic fields in the plasma. The difficulties and prospects for using electromagnetic shock tubes for a wide range of physical studies are examined. Various methods were used while carrying out experiments, including optical, spectral, contact, high-frequency, electromagnetic, and other studies. Physical phenomena in electromagnetic shock tubes are examined only from the gas dynamics point of view. Author
