Experimental study of nonequilibrium dissociation of molecular oxygen
Institute of Mechanics M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University 1 Michurinsky Prosp., Moscow 119192, Russia
The quantitative experimental data on the evolution of gas temperature (T) and vibrational temperature (Tv) of molecular oxygen behind the strong shock wave front (T = 4,000-10,800 K) were used for determination of oxygen vibrational relaxation time and dissociation rate constants under thermal nonequilibrium conditions. Some of theoretical models of thermal nonequilibrium dissociation were tested using the measured profiles of the Tv and T.
