Abstract : A new shock tube technique is de cribed by w ich high emp rature stu ies of exothermic reactions can be made. The formation of reaction waves at the back wall of a shock tube are recorded using a schlieren technique and a rotating drum camera. Data are obtained by measuring times to wave ormation. T HE RESULT OF INVES IGATIONS OF REACTION IN STOICHIOMETRIC H-O-Ar and diborane-Ar mixtures initiated by the reflected shock are presented. (Author)
