Preliminary results of measurements of thermal shock structure are presented. Cold wire probes, of the type developed by W. H. Christiansen (Ref. 2), were constructed utilizing wires of .00001" and .00005" diameters. Heat transfer measurements were obtained at [...] and 7.5 in the GALCIT 17-inch shock tube over a range of initial pressures from 25 to 200 [...], producing thicknesses on the order of one centimeter.
The heat transfer data obtained are compared with predictions based on the Navier-Stokes theory and the recent Liepmann-Narasimha-Chahine theory (Ref. 3) for shock profiles and the free molecule heat-transfer theory of Stalder, et al. (Ref. 1).
