Paper Abstract

When a high speed train enters a long tunnel, compression waves which were generated in front of the high speed train, coalesce into a weak shock wave and the shock wave eventually is emitted from the tunnel exit as a sonic boom. In order to investigate the tunnel sonic boom a 1/300 scaled tunnel simulator was constructed in which a plastic cylinder slides down along a 8 degree(s) inclined long tube with a speed of 60 to 110 m/s. The high speed cylinder and the steel tube represent the train and the tunnel, respectively. Double exposure holographic interferometric flow visualization was used for clarifying the formation and propagation of weak shock waves in the scale tunnel simulator. For interpretation of behaviors of weak shock waves, a shock tube experiment was also carried out again by using holographic interferometry.
