Shock Tube

Small Shock Tube

Test section has an 62mm×62mm square cross section. Measurement of pressure with pressure tranceducer at wall and visualization through acryl window have been done.

Large Shock Tube

This shock tube has an square cross section and can generate counter shock wave using two driver section, so called “Counter Driver Shock Tube”. Pressure transducer is able to install every 10 cm distance at the test section tube. Also test section has BK-7 windows for visualization. Currently, we are working to estimate the characteristics. In future work, this apparatus will be used for the shock wave and turbulent flow interaction.
