Abstract : Experimental and analytical investigations have been made of pseudo-stationary oblique shock wave reflections in monatomic, diatomic, triatomic and polyatomic gases. A method using explosive-driven implosions has been shown to provide a simple means of studying fusion plasmas at extreme temperatures and pressures. Analyses have been made of the dynamics of dusty gas flows produced by shock waves. Extensions of the random choice method have allowed accurate analysis of several types of flows with strong shock waves. (Author)
