Abstract : The paper details some investigations relating to non-stationary wav interactions and their effects on the propagation of finite amplitude waves in ducts with either a gradual or sudden change in cross-section. The influence of the angle of divergence on the wave-front and the perturbed flow behind it has been examined in different diffuser configurations using Schlieren spark photography. (Author)
