Introduction

Following the original numerical work by Hornung, [1], an experimental study of the behaviour of imploding conical shock waves was undertaken by Skews et al [2] in which good correlation was exhibited with the patterns of reflection for waves of various strengths. This study extends that study to various incident wave strengths.
