Effect of a shock wave on heat propagation

The nature of the propagation of a thermal wave produced by a powerful explosion was described in a number of papers, for example, [1–6]. It was shown by a numerical method [4] that a shock wave is present together with the thermal wave. In this paper, the effect of a homothermal shock wave on heat propagation is evaluated by an approximate method.
