Kinetics and energy transfer studies using a shock tube and probe laser

Abstract:

A continuous wave infrared CO laser has been used to monitor kinetic processes occurring behind shock waves. Studies have been made of both vibrational energy transfer and reaction kinetics.

It has been demonstrated that, following shock-heating, the vibrational levels of CO and DC1 relax via a continuous series of Boltzmann distributions into the final Boltzmann equilibrium distribution at rhe translational temperature. This is shown to be in accord with the established theory, an...
