Simulations set-up

Data generated in separate IT simulations are fed through the inlet of a shock tube with a stationary shock inside.

High Reynolds and Mach numbers post-shock turbulence

In a recent shock-resolved Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) study of the shock-turbulence interaction, we have shown that, when there is a large scale separation between turbulence scales and shock width and the upstream turbulence is weak, the interaction can be described by the Linear Interaction Approximation (LIA).
