Abstract : Numerical solutions, employing the fluid-in-cell differencing scheme, have been obtained for the motion of a shock wave in three different configurations, namely, a duct with a sudden enlargement, a diffuser, and a branched duct. The numerical results have been compared with the experimentally observed pattern of the wave motion and the flow in these configurations. For the problems studied, the fluid-in-cell method yields a reasonable representation of the main features of the observed pattern of interaction. (Author)
