High speed plasma flow about probes

Allen, Gregory Hamilton


A method for evaluation of the interaction between a uniform magnetic field and a compressible inviscid, electrically conducting ideal gas flow past a blunt body is presented. An experiment using a double diaphragm shock tube to produce a slug of gas with high electrical conductivity is performed to confirm the theoretical results. The theoretical problem is considered in two parts. Firstly, the flow field around a hemispherical cap in a supersonic flow is evaluated using the method of...[Show more]
