Title: Radiography for a Shock-accelerated Liquid Layer

Abstract

A flash X-ray radiography technique is employed to measure the volume fraction of a shock accelerated liquid layer in a large vertical shock tube. A series of the fragmented liquid layer X-ray snap-shots are taken at different post-shock times and pieced together to reconstruct the entire volume fraction field of the shock-induced breakup at Mach 2.12. A rapid development of the gas-liquid mixing layer is found as water layer that is initially 12.8 mm thick spreads to 22.5 cm in 3.2 ms.
