dc.description.abstractThe shock pulse and other general spark phenomena have been studied at Kalamazoo College for a number of years under the direction of Assistant Professor Wayne M. Wright. Recent accomplishments include investigations of shock wave scattering from narrow plates, energy dissipation of the spark and the resistance of the spark. The particular phenomena studied in this project are characteristics of the spark-produced shock wave (transient) as a function of the angle of observation, relative to the normal to the line of the spark gap.en_US
