Conference paper


The surface jets induced by an explosion below an immersed gas bubble in water are investigated experimentally. Typical phenomena including the bubble evolution and the jet formation are observed through high-speed photography. It is found that the inner jet resulting from the shock bubble interaction is the main cause of the surface jet. The velocity of the surface jet decreases with the initial depth of the bubble, and there exists a maximum bubble depth above which no surface jet occurs.
