Waves and Shock Waves in Radiation Gasdynamics
In order to consider the influence of thermal radiation on the flow field, we study the wave motion of infinitesimal amplitude in a radiating gas. Such wave motion will bring out many essential features of radiation gasdynamics. In section 2, we discuss the wave motion of infinitesimal amplitude in an optically thick medium at very high temperature so that the gas is in a state of plasma. We consider the wave motion with the influence of both thermal radiation and electromagnetic forces. In section 3, we consider the wave motion in a radiating gas of finite mean free path of radiation. This case has not been thoroughly investigated as the case of optically thick medium. However some essential features will be discussed for this general case.
