Abstract:

Liquid carbon disulfide CS2 was shocked by reflection to pressures where reaction occurs. Progress of shocks and reaction was monitored with electromagnetic particle velocity probes. Particle velocity waveforms show that a two-wave structure evolves in the reflected shock wave at pressures above about 75 kbar, with the character depending upon the pressure. Two wave evolution is accompanied by an induction time, followed simultaneously by particle velocity decay and a burst of decaying electrical noise the noise decay takes longer than the particle velocity decay. Equation of state models were developed and used to calculate temperatures both before and after reaction. From these calculations and observations, it is hypothesized that a decomposition chemical reaction occurs in the shock. Author
