Keywords: shock waves, hemispherical shells, supersonic speed
In this paper, experimental and numerical investigation on the mechanism of vibrations of shock waves ahead of a hemispherical shell will be described. Compering visualized images with numerical result, we have confirmed that small vortex from the edge of the model continuously interfered and finally distorted the bow shock.
