The present research focuses on the propagation of a shock wave in a double room divided by a wall in which there is an opening. It is experimental work conducted on a small scale. The shock wave is generated by the detonation of a gaseous charge located in the emitter room. The model is equipped with pressure sensors in both rooms. Here, the effect of the geometry and dimensions of the opening in the connecting wall on the reflection of shock waves is analysed in the receptor room. The shock wave parameters in terms of overpressure and arrival time were determined for the three reflected peaks.
