Planar shock-cylindrical blast wave interaction
The phenomena of interaction between planar shock wave and cylindrical blast wave is studied theoretically and numerically. Our work concentrated on the case of a blast source ignited in front of a planar moving shock. The method of dimensional analysis is first applied to serve as a foundation for numerical simulation. Then some features of the flow field, especially the transition of the waves system, are analyzed through theory of shock polar. The results of theoretical analysis are agreeable to numerical results.
