Abstract : The condensation of water, methul alcohol, and carbon tetrachloride was investigated in the rarefaction wave in a shock tube, where the rarefaction wave passes through and cools the wet gas in the highpressure side of the diaphragm and thereby induces condensation. Inert gas was Ar and N2. A slow type of condensation and also 'pseudo shock' condensation was observed. Interpretation of the results has proven more difficult than anticipated. This report presents the raw experimental data for the consideration of other workers. (Author)
