Volume II: Physico-Chemical Processes and Non-Equilibrium Flows — An Introductory Survey
This volume contains 72 papers on physico-chemical processes and non-equilibrium flows presented at the 19th ISSW, Marseille, July 26–30, 1993. These papers are divided herein into groups concerned with chemical kinetics (22), combustion kinetics (12), non-equilibrium flows (24), and plasmas/astrophysics (14). This introduction attempts to place all this work in the context of current knowledge and practice in the application of shock waves to the observation of chemical and physical processes. As such, it begins with a brief consideration of this context, the history and current status of the field, and then considers the present papers in light of this context.
