Abstract:

By the method of high-speed photoregistration, a study was made of the interaction of shock waves. It was shown that the character of interaction is analogous to the interaction of a shock wave with a wall. The relationships obtained in the case of a strong shock wave for speeds of reflected and incident waves coincide with those calculated for the interaction of a shock wave with a wall. In certain cases, behind the front of the reflected wave, there was observed an expansion wave. Author
