A nonlinear theory for predicting the effects of unsteady laminar, turbulent, or transitional boundary layers on the attenuation of shock waves in a shock tube with experimental comparison
Description: Report presenting a modification of the linearized attenuation theory by using an unsteady compressible local skin-friction coefficient, a nonlinear approach, and the consideration of transition effects. Curves for predicting attenuation for shock pressure ratios up to 20 and a range of shock-tube Reynolds numbers are provided.
