Abstract

The non-stationary interaction of shock waves with obstacles is one of the most important problems of gas dynamics. These interactions entail a complex system of oblique shock waves which are usually appeared to problems relevant to explosion dynamics. Accurate prediction of pressure, velocity and temperature are essential for engineers who are interested in building explosion-resistant structures. This has motivated the present study. In the past, many experimental (Ben-Dor et al., 1980) and analytical investigations (Whitham, 1957, Bryson and Gross, 1961) have been studied oblique shock wave reflection problem. On the other hand, because of recent improvements in numerical techniques for solving the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations, major advances have been made in the field of numerical simulation of oblique shock wave reflection.
