Numerical Study of Variable Density Turbulence Interaction with a Normal Shock Wave

The interaction between a normal shock wave and isotropic turbulence is an important fundamental problem which has been extensively studied. An understanding of the physics behind this problem is beneficial to many applications such as hypersonic combustion, inertial confinement fusion and astrophysics.
