High Energy Concentration by Symmetric Shock Focusing
The purpose of the present research is to study, obtain understanding and actively control the major features of the complex, highly nonlinear phenomenon of shock convergence and focusing in gas. The nature of our research is experimental, numerical and theoretical. The core is the experimental facility consisting of a specially constructed shock tube with various test sections. We have up to this moment used a specially constructed annular configuration delivering 2D cylindrical shocks converging towards the center of the transparent thin cylindrical test section.
