The propagation of a step-shaped shock wave in a liquid is investigated experimentally. The liquid contains spherical three-phase clusters (liquid, solid balls, gas bubbles). A comparison of the experimental data on the velocity and wave structure with calculations with the use of the Boussinesq equation for a three-phase cluster medium is made. It is shown that the sound speed in a three-phase medium of cluster structure is higher than in a homogeneous three-phase medium.
