Abstract : The purpose of this note is to present a series of alignment charts which were developed for shock tubes. The charts are for singly ionized equilibrium argon, and include the effects of T(1) and P(1) on the flow. Using the charts, it becomes a simple matter to rapidly estimate the pressure, temperature, density, velocity, degree of ionization, and electrical conductivity of the shocked gas. (Author)
