Timmes, Francis Xavier
MetadataShow full item record
This study was conducted to determine the feasibility of using a direct current glow discharge as a velocity meter up to the speed of sound. The primary problem was to show the dependence of the glow discharge characteristics on velocity as separable from the many variables that affect the characteristics.
