Linear Interaction Approximation for Shock/Perturbation Interaction

  • Pierre Sagaut
  • Claude Cambon


This chapter is devoted to the Linear Interaction Approximation for the interaction between a shock wave and turbulent disturbances, with extension to the case of a rarefaction wave. Coupling with the Kovasznay decomposition into physical modes is discussed, with extension to mixture of perfect gas, detonation waves. The derivation of analytical solutions via a Laplace-tranform-based approach is also discussed.
