Two-prong approach acts as an introduction to this important subject as well as a reference tool
Includes the resolution of the well-known von Neumann paradox
This book provides a comprehensive state-of-the-knowledge description of the shock wave reflection phenomena from a phenomenological point of view.
The first part is a thorough introduction to oblique shock wave reflections, presenting the two major well-known reflection wave configurations, namely, regular (RR) and Mach (MR) reflections, the corresponding two- and three-shock theories, their analytical and graphical solution and the proposed transition boundaries between these two reflection-wave configurations.
The second, third and fourth parts describe the reflection phenomena in steady, pseudo-steady and unsteady flows, respectively. Here, the possible specific types of reflection wave configurations are described, criteria for their formation and termination are presented and their governing equations are solved analytically and graphically and compared with experimental results.
The resolution of the well-known von Neumann paradox and a detailed description of two new reflection-wave configurations - the Guderely reflection (GR) and Vasilev reflection (VR) - are also given.
The fifth part is a detailed listing of the most relevant scientific papers and research reports that have been published so far in the field of shock wave reflection phenomena.
Intended as both introduction and reference, this book will benefit scientists and engineers in shock wave related academic and industrial research and development, as well as graduate students wishing to specialize in the field.
