In this article, we use the surface theory and compatibility conditions to describe the behaviour of wave propagation and their culmination into a shock wave in nonideal reacting gas with dust particles. The one-dimensional steepening of waves has been considered. A Bernoulli-type transport equation for the velocity gradient has been obtained. A numerical approach is used to explain the effects of van der Waals excluded volume of the medium, the ratio of specific heats, and the mass concentration of the solid particles on the shock wave.
A Journal of Physical Sciences: Zeitschrift für Naturforschung A (ZNA) is an international scientific journal which publishes original research papers from all areas of experimental and theoretical physics. In accordance with the name of the journal, which means “Journal for Natural Sciences”, manuscripts submitted to ZNA should have a tangible connection to actual physical phenomena.
