Abstract

The recent study of Ben-Dor and Rayevsky (1994) regarding the interaction of planar shock waves with high density layers was reconsidered in order to demonstrate a possible dust entrainment mechanism which has not received appropriate attention so far. It was shown that, as a result of the interaction, a large vortex is generated. This vortex could in fact contribute to the entrainment of dust when planar shock waves interact with loose dusty layers. In addition, the effect of viscosity on the proposed dust entrainment mechanism was also considered.
