In this paper, power series solutions for strong spherical shocks of time dependent variable energy propagating in a two-phase gas–particle medium are presented taking into consideration the power series solution technique (Sakurai in J Phys Soc Jpn 8:662–669, 1953; Freeman in J Phys D Appl Phys 2(1):1697–1710, 1968). Assuming the medium to be a mixture of a perfect gas and small solid particles, the power series solutions are obtained in terms of $$M^{-2}$$M-2, where M is the upstream Mach… 

Strong Shock Waves in a Dusty-Gas Atmosphere Under Isothermal Conditions: A Power Series Solution

In this paper, a study concerning strong plane and cylindrically symmetric shock waves in a dusty gas atmosphere under isothermal condition has been performed, by taking into account the power series

Spherical Shock Waves of Variable Energy in A Radiating Atmosphere

This paper presents power series similarity solutions for spherical shock waves of variable energy propagating in a radiating gas, taking into consideration the Rosseland’s radiative diffusion model.

Strong shock waves in a self-gravitating gas: A power series solution

In this article the problem of strong shock wave moving in a self-gravitating gaseous medium is examined for cylin- drically and spherically symmetric flow. It is assumed that the density



Variable-energy Blast Waves Generated by a Piston Moving in a Dusty Gas

This paper presents a similarity solution for strong blast waves of variable energy propagating in a dusty gas. It is assumed that the equilibrium-flow condition is maintained and the variable energy

On imploding cylindrical and spherical shock waves in a perfect gas

The problem of a cylindrically or spherically imploding and reflecting shock wave in a flow initially at rest is studied without the use of the strong-shock approximation. Dimensional arguments are

Shock jump relations for a dusty gas atmosphere

This paper presents simplified forms of jump relations for one dimensional shock waves propagating in a dusty gas. The dusty gas is assumed to be a mixture of a perfect gas and spherically small

Strong convergent shock waves near the center of convergence: a power series solution

A Lagrangian formulation of the self-similar convergent shock problem is presented for a quiescent perfect gas of zero pressure. The initial density is either constant or decreasing towards the

Disperse Two-Phase Flows, with Applications to Geophysical Problems

In this paper, we study the motion of a fluid with several dispersed particles whose concentration is very small (smaller than $$10^{-3}$$10-3), with possible applications to problems coming from

The converging shock wave from a spherical or cylindrical piston

A spherical or cylindrical cavity containing quiescent gas begins to contract at high constant radial speed, driving an axisymmetric shock wave inward to collapse at the centre. We analyse the flow

Self-similar spherical shock solution with sustained energy injection

We present the generalization of the Sedov-Taylor self-similar strong spherical shock solution for the case of a central energy source varying in time, $E=A t^k$, where $A$ and $k$ are constants. The

An Existence Theorem for the Point Source Blast Wave Equation

We consider the existence of a solution for the point-source blast wave propagation caused by instantaneous explosion. No similarity solutions of the Euler equations satisfy the conservation law on

On the question of universality of imploding shock waves

For the case of initially infinitesimally weak spherically and cylindrically imploding shocks, Ponchaut et al. (J. Fluid Mech., 560:102–122, 2006) recently obtained universal solutions. We study the
