Experimental study of converging spherical shockwave driven Richtmyer-Meshkov instability

Abstract

The paper describes experimental results of the convergence of a spherical reflected shock wave from a spherical wall and its induced Richtmyer-Meshkov instability. In order to visualize the shock waves and their interaction with gaseous interfaces in spherical geometry, an aspheric lens shaped transparent test section made of acrylic PMMA was designed and… (More)
