Abstract:

The behavior of shock heated Argon expanding through a nozzle into the still atmosphere was investigated. It was found that any attempt to control or shape the emitted slug of hot gas to form a spherical bubble were unsuccessful, that a spherical weak shock propagated in front of the hot slug of gas, and that the flow was highly turbulent.
