Abstract/Summary Complex flows are induced in a cavity impacted by a shock wave. Early work concentrated on shallow parabolic cavities with the main interest being the focussing properties. Work on cylindrical surfaces has concentrated on wave reflection regimes. The advent of high framing rate, multi-frame, digital cameras has allowed much more detailed studies to be undertaken, which have identified a number of new features, as well as clarifying and modifying previous findings. Weak perturbations are introduced into the flow as identifiers of regions of influence from particular points on the wall. Particular emphasis is placed on the study of some new reflection patterns, the manner in which the waves focus in different cavity shapes, and complex shear layer flows with jetting and the development of Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilities.
