Abstract

An experimental investigation on the IHSM 4 × 8 cm Shock Tube has confirmed the hypothesis of Ben-Dor (1978) and Ben-Dor & Glass (1979) that in truly non-stationary flows the transitions from regular to Mach reflexion (RR → MR) and from Mach to regular reflexion (MR → RR) are different. Consequently it is shown that a hysteresis loop exists in the [formula omitted] transition phenomenon.
