Shock Tube Calculator

Online calculator that simulates the performance of a laboratory shock tube. User input includes information about both the driver and driven gases and the desired Mach number. Output includes a full array of information about the various regions in the shock tube (T, p, V, etc) as well as the speed and Mach number of the reflected wave. Also included are the pertinent equations for a shock tube and a table of properties for a number of gases.... Show More
