Abstract : An accurate table for the gasdynamic properties behind incident and reflected normal shock waves was constructed for gaseous oxygen and nitrogen in dissociation equilibrium. The values of the temperature and pressure behind the respective shocks were computed to within 0.1% of the exact root. Second order correction factors for the molecular rotation function were also taken into account. The initial temperature is taken to be 298.13K for all cases, the initial pressures cover the range from 0.01 to 2000 mmHg and the incident shock Mach number is varied in increments of 0.1 from 6 to 18. The computer program was written in such a way that only slight modifications are needed for its use with other gases and other states of equilibrium. (Author)
