Shock wave-turbulence interactions. (English) Zbl 0988.76048
Annu. Rev. Fluid Mech. 32, 309-345 (2000).
Summary: We review idealized interactions of shock waves with homogeneous and isotropic turbulence, homogeneous sheared turbulence, turbulent jets, shear layers, turbulent wake flows, and two-dimensional boundary layers. The interaction between a shock wave and turbulence is mutual. A shock wave exhibits substantial unsteadiness and deformation as a result of the interaction, whereas the characteristic velocity, timescales and length scales of turbulence change considerably. The outcomes of the interaction depend on the strength, orientation, location, and shape of the shock wave, as well as on the flow geometry and boundary conditions. The state of turbulence and the compressibility of incoming flow are two additional parameters that also affect the interaction.
