Abstract : Experimental investigations were carried out in the UTIAS 4 in. x 7 in. hypersonic shock tube to measure diaphragm opening-times and to evaluate shock tube performance with particle traps located near the diaphragm station. Calculations, based on simple theoretical models, were made in order to obtain approximate comparisons with the experimental results. (Author)
