Abstract:

Equilibrium properties of combustible stoichiometric mixtures of hydrogen-oxygen water have been computed for a range of pressures and temperatures consistent with a gas-driven implosion. Dissociation, ionization, and lowering of the ionization potential have been taken into account for computation of the chemical equilibrium conditions. The program is based on the shock equilibrium program of Horton and Menard 1969. To this program were added corrections due to van der Waals forces and lowering of the ionization potential. The latter effect was especially important at high electron number densities. The results should provide insight into spectroscopic data obtained from gas-driven implosions. Author
