Research overview:
As the entry velocity of the re-entry capsule of "MUSES-C" reaches 13km/sec, it is necessary to understand by conducting experiments the thermochemical conditions underlying the generated shock waves. In order to attempt the above, this study uses the free-piston-type shock wave tube to generate such strong shock waves and then attempts to elucidate the thermal-gas dynamic structures underlying the high velocity shock waves. Emergence of electrons was remarkable in the given velocity range and electrons were observed in front of the shock waves. These electrons are seen to have an impact on the generation of electrons in back of shock waves, for which further research is expected.
