Abstract : This report describes progress into research on the interaction of droplets with shock waves, the mixing of co-axial jets in the near region, the influence of nearby solid boundaries on multihole probes, and the behavior of shock trains in ramjet inlets. The study of the mixing of coaxial jets has been completed with the submission of a PhD dissertation. Appropriate software for laser velocimetry data reduction has been prepared for use with the droplet-shock wave study, and a computer program for the description of droplet shock wave interaction has been generated. Preliminary measurements of solid boundary influence on five hole probe readings have been taken, and optical data for shock trains in ramjet inlets have been obtained from both a water analogy rig and a supersonic wind tunnel.
