In his excellent analysis of electrical measurements in shock tube flows, Hollyer(1) has demonstrated certain pitfalls in the application of conventional Langmuir probe techniques to the evaluation of charge densities in the moving stream of hot gas confined within the tube walls. The purpose of this note is to describe somewhat similar experiments which illustrate other eccentricities in probe behavior under these conditions.
