dc.description.abstractNormal ionizing shock waves in neutral argon gas were generated using a cylindrical theta pinch. Axial propagation of these shock waves has been investigated using photoelectric detectors. Magnetic and electrostatic probes were used to give additional information regarding shock structure. The investigation was carried out using steady state magnetic fields normal to the shock front, with a maximum field of 7200 gauss. Initial gas pressures ranged from 0.02 to 1.0 Torr . The investigations included studies of the effects of initial pressure, magnetic field, and capacitor bank voltage upon the shock velocity. Included is a brief discussion of the theta pinch along with the current theory of normal ionizing shock waves.
