Paper Abstract

Shock wave propagation in plexiglas, generated by an oblique detonation is monitored using a shadowgraph framing camera technique. The transparent material loses its transparency upon arrival of the shock wave and then regains it behind the shock front where the pressure drops. The experimental dataare compared to a semianalytic calculation and to a two dimenstional numerical simulation. Good agreement is obtained with both calculations.
