Abstract : Calculations pertaining to the measurement of the equilibrium gas temperature in a shock tube are presented. The calculations are based on the method of monitoring simultaneously the relative light emission from two wavelength regions of the vibration-rotation bands belonging to the 2 sigma to 2 pi electronic transition of the OH radical. The apparatus required for the temper-ATURE MEASUREMENTS IS DESCRIBED AND AN APPROPRIATE CALIBRATION PROCEDURE FOR THE INSTRUMENTATION IS INDICATED. (Author)
