Spectroscopic studies of heated salts behind shock fronts

by Dawson, Victor Charles

Abstract (Summary)
Part I: Qualitative Spectroscopic Studies of Heated Salts Behind Shock Fronts: Experimental studies have been conducted on the type of radiation produced from various materials by means of shock waves. As is to be expected, the observed spectra, which are similar to spark and arc spectra, are strongly dependent upon the shock conditions. Part II: Quantitative Spectroscopic Studies: Experimental studies were made to determine whether an estimate of population temperature could be obtained from spectrographic records. These tests suggest that excessive cooling occurs in the shock tube. The data relating to temperature measurement are incomplete.
