Abstract : The pressure distribution behind a glancing shock reflection similar to a Mach configuration as predicted by the Lighthill theory has been computed by a Card-Programmed Calculator for shock strengths of 0.90, 0.50. 0.25, 0.20, 0.15, and 0.10 and resulting isobars drawn. For weak shocks agreement is found with the Bargmann theory and for strong shocks a graph from the Ting-Ludloff version is consistent with these results. (Author)
