Abstract : The shock wave structure in gas-particle mixtures has been investigated by measuring density profiles of the gas and number density profiles or the particles for shock Mach numbers below M(s) = 1.2. The measured profiles are compared with theoretical results. The experiments have been performed with a vertically mounted shock tube. For the generation of weak shock waves the usual diaphragm has been replaced by a pneumatic valve. A laser differential interferometer was used to measure the gas density and the number density of the particles was determined by extinction measurements.
