Distortion of weak shock waves by turbulence in a stratified still atmosphere
Abstract
A wave propagation theory is derived that combines the effects of atmospheric stratification and single scattering. The velocity, density, and pressure perturbations are multiplied by the factor (cp times pp/cO times pO) to the 1/2 power. At the observer's location, the sound velocity and static pressure are denoted by cO and pO, respectively. The product of cO and pO is, per unit time, the work done by the static pressure at the observer's altitude; while the product of cp and pp is the corresponding quantity at the altitude where the incident wave is given.
