Head-On Collision of Normal Shock Waves with Rigid Porous Materials

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Based on experimental results and some additional simplifying assumptions, the general macroscopic two-phase equations governing the flow field which is developed in a gas-saturated rigid porous medium domain were simplified to a form which enabled us to develop two analytical models for calculating the jump conditions across a strong compaction wave. Predictions obtained by these two simplified analytical models are compared to the experimental results of Sandusky and Liddiard (1985) and to predictions of another more complicated model which was proposed by Powers et al. (1989). Fairly good to excellent agreements are evident.
