The Kunkel-Gross-Chapman-Jouguet hypothesis for
the propagation of normal ionizing shock waves, was
adapted for the description of the transverse ionizing
shock waves in the planar electromagnetic shock tube.
This was made possible by the adoption of an ohmic
dissipation model for the expansion wave, resulting in
the choice of the isentropic sound speed as the small
disturbance speed. The validity of this choice was
established by bow shock measurements. Transverse
ionizing shock...[Show more]
