Unformatted text preview: a pressure ratio p2/p1=3.508 across it. Calculate the Pitot and static pressures recorded by the probe (a) before the shock passes, (b) after the shock passes and before the contact surface arrives. (c) Explain whether these measured pressures will change when the contact surface reaches the probe, and why? (d) How long will it take for the shock to reach the probe from the time the diaphragm breaks? 2. We are concerned with establishing the capabilities of a shock tube using air for producing very high pressures through shock reflection (such as would be needed to run...
