On supplementing shock tube drivers by magnetohydrodynamic interactions
A magnetohydrodynamic interaction is applied to the driver gas behind a shock propagating along a constant area tube in order to accelerate the shock. It is found that in the expansion fan, which usually matches the driver gas conditions to the shock heated gas conditions, the expanded part is more favourable to shock acceleration by MHD means than the unexpanded part by reason both of the maximum acceleration which may be achieved and of the current required to produce a given...[Show more]
