"As the blast wave travels outwards at speeds of about 11 million miles per hour, it encounters surrounding material and slows down, generating a second shock wave 6 called a reverse shock 6 that travels backwards, similar to how a traffic jam travels backwards from the scene of an accident on a highway," the agency continued.
As the Earth moves through so-called Solar Wind at extreme speeds, it generates a shock wave in a much the same way that a supersonic aircraft generates a sonic boom, says Dr Gingell.
Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) has been widely used in medical practice since the 1980s.
This paper studies the law of attenuation and propagation of the shock wave after the gas explosion accident in general air districts, instead of the law of mutual association between shock wave and flame wave in the gas combustion area.
The study found that the temperature changes in the upper atmosphere generated by CMEs are extreme: the shock waves created when CMEs wallop the atmosphere can cause the temperature to rise as much as 750[degrees]F, while the nitric oxide subsequently created can then lead the temperature to plummet about 930[degrees]F.
In shock simulation tests, the shock wave simulator played an important role in energy transferring and conversion.
2,909,661, includes 20 claims relating to the use of shock waves, generated with laser systems, for hydraulic fracturing of rock formations, which can be employed in both secondary and tertiary oil recovery.
Repetitively pulsed strong shock waves generated using the electrohydraulic effect can be explained by two mechanisms.
When supersonic engine airplane moves faster than the speed of sound, and there is an abrupt decrease in the flow area, shock waves are generated in the flow.

then the solution of the Riemann problem originating from the origin (0, 0) is two shock waves for the perturbed Riemann problem (1) and (2).
