Abstract

The streak camera technique was employed to investigate the reflection process of a planar shock wave over a double wedge. It is shown that this technique is superior to others in precisely determining whether a Mach reflection is direct, stationary or inverse. Furthermore, it provides an excellent means of exactly determining the location of the regular to Mach reflection transition over a double wedge.
