The purpose of this research was to become familiar with the iterative method and to apply this technique to further the understanding of the previous shock-tube experiments. It was anticipated that the previous results could then be extended by computer-simulated propagation to shock amplitudes that cannot be obtained with our experimental apparatus. We found that only the simulated waveforms with amplitudes of [no more than] .2 atmospheres agreed well with the experimental waveform data.

Markel, Kenneth Earl (1967)A simple form of the shock tube consists of two pieces of tubing separated by a thin air-tight diaphragm. After a pressure difference is created across the diaphragm, it is ruptured. The resulting rush of air from the ...
