In their early days, shock tubes were not taken seriously by the chemical kinetics community. They were not accepted as a legitimate tool for chemical kinetics studies at high temperatures. The main objection was the uncertainty in the temperature behind the shock wave. Whereas most physical processes depend on \( \sqrt T \), the temperature dependence of reaction rates is exponential, exp(−E/RT), which imposes a much higher sensitivity to the temperature, particularly for high E/T. As… CONTINUE READING
