Direct evidence for thermal mechanism of plasma influence on shock wave propagation Academic Article uri icon


  • Shock wave propagation through a glow discharge is studied by a double beam laser Schlieren method. A pulsed discharge is used to separate electron and other plasma related phenomena from thermal effects. The results prove the pure thermal nature of the influence of a plasma on a shock wave. 1999 Published by Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
