Abstract : The microwave attenuation of the air of shock waves of well-developed shocks within Mach number 7-12 was measured. The time dependence of the microwave attenuation was also carefully studied. The effect of converging or diverging transition sections was investigated by measuring (a) Changes in the Mach speed (b) Changes in the microwave attenuation (c) Optical light emission. (Author)
