Simulations of experimental results appearing in Jourdan (2007, Drag Coefficient of a Sphere in a Non-Stationary Flow: New Results,Proc. R. Soc. London, Ser. A, 463, pp. 3323-3345) regarding acceleration of a sphere by the postshock flow were conducted in order to find the contribution of the various parameters affecting the sphere drag force. Based on the good agreement found between present simulations and experimental findings, it is concluded that the proposed simulation scheme could safely be used for evaluating the sphere's motion in the postshock flow.
