Current interest in ultra-high-speed flight has stimulated the development of the shock tube as a device for simulating high stagnation temperatures in supersonic flow. The main difficulty in these tests is the extremely short duration of uniform flow, of the order of 100-500 µsec. This time interval dictates extremely fast response of any measuring instrument applied to shock tube research.
