Non-stationary plane shock wave interaction with localized nanosecond-lasting surface discharges was investigated. Pulse discharge plasma glow evolution was recorded with a CCD camera and gas flow evolution was recorded with laser shadowgraphy. CFD simulations of pulse energy deposition near the horizontal wall surface in front of the shock wave were carried out. Non-stationary 2D symmetrical flow dynamics were studied and analysis of the instantaneous surface discharge energy rate through CFD and shadow images matching was carried out.
