The reshocked single-mode Richtmyer-Meshkov instability is simulated in two spatial dimensions using the fifth-and ninth-order weighted essentially nonoscillatory shock-capturing method with uniform spatial resolution of 256 points per initial perturbation wavelength. The initial conditions and computational domain are modeled after the single-mode, Mach(More)
The ninth-order weighted essentially nonoscillatory (WENO) shock-capturing method is used to investigate the physics of reshock and mixing in two-dimensional single-mode Richtmyer-Meshkov instability to late times. The initial conditions and computational domain were adapted from the Mach 1.21 air (acetone)/ SF6 shock tube experiment of Collins and Jacobs(More)
I could only run this far because you tied my shoe laces. iv Acknowledgements I want to thank my advisor Professor Thomas Hou for the opportunity to work with him. This thesis acquires more meaning within the context of the rest of his research because all his projects revolve around the same ideas and shed light to them from different angles. I admire his(More)
