The large-amplitude shock wave propagation phenomena in air-bubbles/water mixtures were investigated using a two-phase shock tube. Effects of incident shock wave strength and initial void fraction on shock wave pressure characteristics in mixtures are analyzed. Behavior of the bubbles collapsing behind large-amplitude shock waves are also detected by high speed photography.
