Head-on Collision of Normal Shock Waves with Rigid Porous Materials
The head-011 collision of a planar shock wave with a rigid porous material has been investigated experimentally. The study indicated that unlike the reflection from a flexible porous material, where the transmitted compression waves do not converge to a sharp shock wave, in the case of a rigid porous material the transmitted compression waves do converge to a sharp shock wave, which decays as it propagates along the porous material.
