Experimental Verification of Departure from-Rankine- Hugoniot Behaviour in Weak Mach Reflection
Siegenthaler, Alfred & Madhani, Jehangir T. (1998) Experimental Verification of Departure from-Rankine- Hugoniot Behaviour in Weak Mach Reflection. In 13th Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference, 13-18 December 1998, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
Stagnation temperature traverses were performed in the supersonic wind tunnel behind the reflected shock wave of WMR. This had been suggested, among other obser-vations, by some earlier puzzling results from shock tube experiments. The present findings substantially confirm the hypothesis that the reflected shock undergoes a transformation which produces a departure from RH behaviour. This anomaly is found to result in a small drop of stagnation enthalpy across the reflected wave. This mechanism raises the r-wave’s ailing streamline deflecting capacity. The effect goes on increasing past RR till the conditions for onset of WMR can be satisfied.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
