Cryogenic shock tube


Two shock tubes have been developed which allow for partial or full immersion of the test sections within a cryogenic bath. One tube is used for the study of shock-wave interactions with strong density gradients, and the other to obtain very large shock Mach numbers with ideal gas conditions in all flow regions.
