Analytical prediction of regular reflection over rigid porous surfaces in pseudo-steady flows Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract An analytical model for solving the flow field associated with regular reflections of straight shock waves over porous layers has been developed. The governing equations of the gas inside the porous material were obtained by simplifying the general macroscopic balance equations which were obtained by an averaging process over a representative elementary volume of the microscopic balance equations as originally done by Bear & Bachmat (1990). The analytical predictions of the proposed model were compared to experimental results of Skews (1992) and Kobayashi, Adachi & Suzuki (1993). Very good to excellent agreement was evident.
