Transonic shock wave/boundary layer interaction over a wall-mounted bump was investigated with specific focus on shock wave unsteadiness and identification of its source. A large separation bubble resulted of an interaction driven by a flow characterized by a peak Mach number of 1.365. Overall this particular type of transonic unsteadiness is characterized with low amplitude and relatively high frequency motion. Low frequency shock unsteadiness was optically estimated and matched spectral content of wall fluctuating pressure. A strong correlation between separation onset and reattachment zones suggested a model of bubble expansion/contraction at the reattachment point where upstream-traveling pressure waves are generated and cause the shock wave excursions.
