Abstract:

A summary is given of the research which was accomplished during the past five years Feb. 1, 1982 to Jan. 31, 1987 on USAF Grant AFOSR-82-0096. Numerous journal papers and reports have been published including the Dryden Lecture by Prof. I. I. Glass on Some Aspects of Shock Wave Research , which appeared in the AIAA Journal, 25, 2, pp. 214-229, 1987. It is shown that many important contributions have been made interferometrically, analytical and numerically to nonstationary oblique shock-wave reflections, which have achieved international recognition. Although the anayticaly and numerical foundations have been laid for dusty gas shock tube flows, the experimental work has not kept pace, owing to the difficulty of getting homogeneous air dust mixtures. It is a very difficult problem, which we hope to resolve in 1987. Keywords Pseudostationary oblique shock wave Interferometry Numerical analysis Dirsty gas shock tube flows.
