Abstract : The results of an experimental investigation of a device for producing high velocity (50 to 90 km/sec), high density gas jets described previously by the author (Doklady AN SSSR, v. 158, no. 6, 1964) are presented. Brief descriptions of the device and the measuring techniques and apparatus are given. The effects of the shape of the chamber, the material and thickness of the chamber surface, the radius of the discharge tube and its shape, and the mass of the diaphragm on the jet velocity were investigated. A system composed of a shock wave, a reflected shock wave, and the resultant oblique shock wave is analyzed. An attempt is made to construct an approximate scheme for gas acceleration and compression by the plate and to carry out preliminary calculations of the gas flow. (Author)
