Structure of Shock Waves in Noble Gases Under High-Density Conditions
In the present paper, we show the dependence of the shock structure in a dense, noble gas on each of the three non-dimensional parameters: non-dimensional initial density, non-dimensional initial temperature, and non-dimensional shock velocity. It will also be demonstrated that the length scale, most suitable for measuring the thickness of the shock wave in a dense gas, is the sum of the mean free path (calculated the same way as for a dilute gas) and the diameter of a single gas molecule.
