Abstract

Laser induced optical breakdown has been demonstrated as a method for local modification of the shock structure in supersonic flows. Two specific applications at Mach 3.45 are considered: an Edney IV interaction and the intersection of symmetric shock waves in the dual solution domain. Experiments were performed for both cases with detailed flow visualization and quantitatke measurements. Numerical simulations were performed for the crossing shock case and demonstrated the capability for a Mach Reflection to Regular Reflection transition and the Regular Reflection to Mach Reflection transition in the Dual Solution Domain.
