"It is the object of this thesis to give an account of the considerations necessary to design, construct, and operate a shock tube facility.
The primary purpose of the facility was to provide a means to study high strength shock waves in physics, chemistry, and aerodynamic applications.
Preliminary designs were undertaken to determine the basic dimensions and related capabilities. Final design, construction and testing of the tube itself was performed by Nooter Corporation in St. Louis, Missouri. Preliminary designs agreed rather closely with final construction.
Experimental testing was confined to the successful operation of all the various components of the facility"--Abstract, page ii.
