Shock waves can be formed in all states of matter, be it in the single- or multi-phase condition, when the substance is subjected to a rapid change of state, e.g., a sudden pressure variation. In the case of shock waves in vapors and gases, because of the fact that the developed theory is often based on the ideal-gas equation of state, it is commonly accepted that shock waves can be only of the compressive type, i.e., in the direction of flow, the gas experiences an abrupt increase of pressure… CONTINUE READING
