A systematic study has been made of the growth of the turbulent mixing zone (TMZ) after a re-shock in the framework of the Richtmyer-Meshkov instability where the initial shock is from the light fluid to the heavy one. The growth rate of the TMZ after the re-shock was found to be independent of its amplitude during the re-shock and to depend directly on the strength of the re-shock.
