Abstract

This paper describes experimental and numerical studies of the focusing process of shock waves reflected from various shapes of a parabolic reflector. The effect of incident shock strength on the focusing process was also investigated. Experiments were carried out in a conventional shock tube and a test gas was air for incident shock Mach numbers ranging from 1.1 to 2.0. In the experiments, the process of shock focusing was visualized by schlieren method. Numerical simulations were conducted for incident shock Mach numbers up to 3.0 by solving the two-dimensional unsteady Euler equations. The numerical results were compared with experiment for various parabolic reflector shapes and for various incident shock Mach numbers. Based on the experimental and computational results, the pattern of shock focusing and shock focusing mechanism are discussed.
