Wpływ radiacji na parametry koncentrycznej fali uderzeniowej w gazie politropowym

Jerzy Tyl, Edward Włodarczyk

By employing the Chester-Chisnell-Whitham method an exact form solution has been constructed for the propagation problem of the concentric shock wave in a polytropic gas with the radiation process taken into account. From the solution obtained it is directly evident that at high temperatures the radiation effects reduce appreciably the amplification of temperature at the front of the concentric shock wave.
