Abstract:

A simplified model is presented of the shock-on-shock problem as it pertains to the encounter between a supersonic cone and a planar blast wave. The model provides an accurate and inexpensive means of predicting the circumferential distribution of peak pressures and pulse duration for all encounter angles between nose-on and broadside with the cone at zero or small angles of attack.
