Modelling of Shock Wave Propagation in a Developing Discharge in Nitrogen
The results of computer simulation of the gas heating process and SW propagation in the plasma of a developing discharge are discussed. It was shown that the non-monotonous dependence of the SW velocity on the time delay between switching-on the discharge and SW generation is entirely determined by the time evolution of the gas temperature.
