The problem investigated was the manner of dissipation of shocks in air flowing through a nozzle. The shocks observed were oblique shocks. They were formed by decreasing the back pressure on the nozzle exit by means of an ejector. The mouth of the nozzle was open to laboratory air. The back pressure was increased after the shocks were formed by closing the valve between the nozzle exit and the ejector, causing dissipation of the shocks. The phenomena were observed by means of a high speed movie camera. The results indicated that the shocks formed dissipated in the throat of the nozzle. They were never observed upstream from the throat.
