A numerical pressure wave reflection experiment in a two-dimensional liquid and its comparison with experimental results are presented. The liquid is simulated by the pseudo-potential extension of the lattice-Boltzmann method. In the simulation a pressure pulse is produced by a point source and the resulting pressure wave is reflected back by a wettable rigid wall. Negative pressure tail can be observed at the vicinity of the wall/liquid interface. The resulted shape of the positive and the negative pressure wave is compared with experimental results obtained in an electromagnetic shock-wave generator. Good agreement has been found between the experimental and simulation results.
