Abstract : A study is presented of an ideal gas shock impinging on a wall. The flow produced by a shock moving in a tube with a constriction is analyzed. The analysis is then applied to the solution of the shock impingement on a constriction. The state of the gas produced by the interaction of a shock with a constriction is determined for the case where the shock is reflected. Contraction ratios are determined so that the shock is reflected. The interaction of a shock with an interface is studied and conditions are determined so that a reflected shock is not produced. In the last section methods are proposed which can be used to analyze the above situations for real gases in thermodynamic equilibrium. (Author)
