The interaction of a reflected shock wave with the boundary layer in a shock tube


naca-tm-1418
1958


By theoretical analysis the existence of several different types of interaction in different ranges of initial shock Mach number is predicted. This analysis is verified experimentally. The most compicated interaction is studied in detail, and a model is proposed. The features of the phenomenon are analyzed, based on this model, and are checked experimentally.
