The focused shock technique for producing transient water jets
1983 (English)In: The second U.S. Water Jet Symposium, May 24, 25, 26, 1983, Rolla, Missouri / [ed] David A. Summers; Frank F. Haston, Rolla, MO: University of Missouri-Rolla , 1983Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents experimental work on a new type of transient water jet device. A spark discharge at one focus of a two-dimensional, elliptical, water filled cavity creates a shock wave which converges towards the other focus. There it enters an axisymmetric duct and is converted into a plane shock wave which moves out from the plane of the ellipse. When the plane wave reaches the free surface at the front of the nozzle a water jet is emitted. The Schliereren technique is used to study the process of wave convergence in the cavity. Resulting jet speeds form a simple non-optimized device are also measured. The fundamental idea appears to work and the results are promising, but difficulties remain.
