Nonstationary interaction of a short blunt body with a cavity in a compressible liquid

  • V. D. Kubenko


The shock-interaction problem for a rigid spherical body and a spherical cavity in a compressible liquid is formulated and solved. Three typical cases of typical dimensions of the body and cavity are examined. An asymptotic solution valid at the earliest stage of interaction is obtained. In the general case, the problem is reduced to an infinite system of integral equations of the second kind. It is numerically solved for the case of a nonsmall air gap
