Abstract : Research concerns a study to gain an under standing of the physical processes which govern the ignition, by rapid compression, of hydraulic fluids. An experimental setup was designed, and most of the parts were ordered. Several tests were made in the present apparatus to determine the motion of a piston inserted in the down stream section. Analytical work was started on the problem of heat transfer from the compressed gas in the downstream section. Also see AD's 417 600 through 417 614.
