Shock wave and contact zone instabilities
It is established that a turbulent mixing zone, rather than an infinitely thin contact surface , separates the test sample from the driver gas, over a wide range of shock tube operating conditions. Severe distortions of the shock front are observed when this mixing zone is co incident with the shock wave. It is shown that these shock distortions can be removed by separating the mixing zone from the shock. This separation can be accomplished by either increasing the mean molecular weight...[Show more]
