Shock wave reflection from a wedge in a dusty gas
Shock wave reflection from wedges has been thoroughly investigated, both experimentally and theoretically/numerically in the past four decades, and by now it is well understood and documented, e.g. in Ben-Dor (1991). This is not the case when the compressible medium is a two-phase gas-dust suspension. In such cases experimental studies are ex- tremely difficult to conduct, since it is almost impossible to produce a uniformly dis- tributed dust in the suspension. As a result, the few reported wedge-reflection studies that appeared in the archived literature are numerical studies of shock wave reflection from wedges placed in a suspension.
