Wave Propagation in Gas-Liquid Media (translated from the Russian 2nd Edition, published in 1990) presents the fundamentals of wave dynamics of two-phase gas-liquid systems. The study of multiphase systems is of growing importance in mechanics and thermophysics, particularly for applications in industrial, energy, power, chemical, and aerospace engineering. This book presents investigations of non-linear wave dynamics, as well as practical applications of wave motion. A system of non-stationary gas-dynamics to replace studies of conventional gas-dynamics is constructed by the book's contributors. Topics discussed include acoustics and shock waves in homogenous gas- and vapor-liquid mixtures, dynamics of gas and vapor bubbles, wave processes in gas-liquid systems, wave propagation in a liquid with vapor bubbles, wave processes on the interface of two media, wave flow of liquid films, and basic calculation formulas for wave dynamics of gas- and vapor-liquid media. The book will be a useful reference for thermophysicists, mechanical engineers, and aerospace engineers.
