Publications on shock-refraction problems typically predict wave patterns resulting from the interaction from the acoustic-impedance ratio. In this note, an analysis based on the shock-impedance ratio is used to derive conditions under which the acoustic-impedance ratio predicts the incorrect type of reflected wave. The range of density ratios for which incorrect types of reflected waves are predicted is found to be quite narrow. Show more
