Abstract
The design and development of a new dusty-gas shock-tube facility at UTIAS is described, and initial experimental results are included. This advanced gas dynamic facility is used to study experimentally the behavior and structure of shock waves propagating in a two-phase gas-particle mixture that is initially at atmospheric pressure. Shock waves with amplitudes as high as 3 MPa and flat-tops up to a metre in length can be produced. The dust particles will normally be inert glass spheres varying in size from 1 to 60 microns in diameter, unless combustion is to be studied. Such particles will be injected and suspended "homogeneously" in air in the horizontal shock-tube channel by means of an initial air flow with induced turbulence. The design and construction features of the shock-tube components, operating and control systems, and safety features are presented. TRUNCATED
