Speed Determinations of Low Amplitude Shock Waves in a Shock Tube
Bolin, Bruce Campbell
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to create shock waves with amplitudes of about 5 psi and to measure both shock speed and pressure profile in an air-filled tube. Rankine - Hugoniot theory predicts that a shock wave travels at a speed dependent upon the pressure of the shock and the medium in which the shock is traveling. In this paper comparison is made between between theoretical and experimental values of shock speed.

Markel, Kenneth Earl (1967)A simple form of the shock tube consists of two pieces of tubing separated by a thin air-tight diaphragm. After a pressure difference is created across the diaphragm, it is ruptured. The resulting rush of air from the ...
Timm, Gerald L. (1974)The purpose of this research was to become familiar with the iterative method and to apply this technique to further the understanding of the previous shock-tube experiments. It was anticipated that the previous results ...
