Propagation Of Shock Waves Through A Channel Of Varying Area Of Cross- Section Containing Mixture Of A Gas And Small Solid Particles


the problem of propagation of shock waves has been discussed in a gas containing small solid particles through a tube of variable area of cross-section by using the method developed by Whitham. The mixture of gas and solid particles is assumed to be in viscid and the flow is governed by Euler’s equations expressing conservation of mass, momentum and energy. The results derived here are generalization of the results obtained previously in absence of small solid particles. Effects of a change in the value of parameters of small solid particles kp and G on the shock propagation are discussed

Key Words

Small solid particle (assumed in viscid), Euler’ s equation, Spherical and cylindrical Shock waves.
