Of all the possible outcomes of the shock interaction problem, Edney Type-III and Type-IV are considered to be of great importance as they lead to high heat transfer rates on the surface in the vicinity of the interaction. The enhancement in heat transfer occurs because of shear layer attachment in Type III interaction and impingement of supersonic jet in Type-IV interaction. In this study, unsteady nature of these interactions is studied in conventional shock tunnel at moderate enthalpy condition of 1.07 Mj/kg at flow Mach number of 5.62. A hemispherical model, 50 mm in diameter, mounted with thin film Platinum gauges is used along with a 25 wedge to serve as a shock generator. The schlieren images are captured along with the surface convective heat transfer rate measurements for the analysis of flowfield over the model during the test time. The pixel intensity scan is performed along several lines running horizontally to estimate the steadiness of the flowfield. These are correlated with the heat transfer rate measurements to understand the non-steady nature of the interaction during the small test times offered by the shock tunnel.
