Numerical investigation of the propagation of shock waves in rigid porous materials: Flow field behavior and parametric study Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract. A numerical parametric study of the flow field which develops when a planar shock wave impinge on a rigid porous material is presented. This study complements an earlier study (Levy et al. 1996a) where the values of some dominating parameters were estimated and the dependence of the resulting flow field on these values was not checked.
