## Abstract

The interferograms of a detailed study on the reflection of non-stationary oblique shock-waves using a 23 cm dia field of view Mach-Zehnder interferometer and the UTIAS 10 cm multiplied by 18 cm Hypervelocity Shock Tube are presented. The investigated incident shock-wave Mach number and compression corner angle ranges were 11 less than equivalent to M//s less than equivalent to 8 and 2 degree less than equivalent to THETA //w less than equivalent to 60 degree , respectively for both argon and nitrogen at an initial pressure P//o approximately equals 15 torr and temperature T//o approximately equals 300 K. The initial conditions, i. e. , M//s, THETA //w, P//o cent and T//o as well as the accuracy with which they were measured are given. A brief theoretical review underlying major findings of the above mentioned study is also presented.
