A simple physical theory of weak Mach reflection over plane surfaces

Sandeman, R J


It is shown that simple physical principles coupled with the inviscid shock jump relations can be applied to the problem of weak Mach reflection to the extent that the triple point path can be predicted from the incident shock Mach number Mi, gas specific heat ratio γ and the inclination angle θw of the reflecting surface to the shock normal. Comparison with the Euler code data and with experiments show close agreement for conditions both far and close to transition and that the general shape...[Show more]
