The equations governing the flow field which is developed when a supersonic dusty-gas suspension passes through a straight oblique shock wave were formulated. A computer code for solving the governing equations was developed and used to obtain the solution for a variety of different intial conditions. In addition, the dependence of the post-shock suspension properties on the various physical properties of the dust particles, (namely the diameter of the dust particles, their specific heat capacity, their material density and the loading ratio of the dust in the suspension) was investigated.
