Abstract : The problem of calculating the flow behind a normal shock front is discussed. The additional complication of finite reaction rate chemistry has been included. A numerical method and several results of flow across a shock wave with an eleven-species, thirteen reaction model of air are presented. Results of the method are discussed and compared with those of Hall, Escheroeder, and Marrone (inviscid hypersonic air flows with coupled non-equilibrium processes. IAS 30th annual meeting, Jan 1962). (Author)
