This paper reports an experimental study of generating water spray with large flow rate by means of hydrodynamic shock tubes. A water column was put in the low-pressure section of the shock tube and high-pressure helium gas was added into the high-pressure section. When the diaphragm separating the gas and the water was ruptured by the high-pressure gas, the water column was driven downwards to discharge from the tube exit to form a jet/spray. Two kinds of rupture methods, namely quasi-static and dynamic processes, were tested. Flow visualizations confirmed that the gas/liquid contact surface and the generated jet/spray were quite unstable.
