Direct numerical simulation is used to study the interaction of a Mach 1.5 shock wave and various types of anisotropic turbulent flows. We compare the interaction of isotropic, axisymmetric and sheared turbulences (sometimes combined), with a specific interest for the sheared situation. The sign and magnitude of the correlation between the velocity and temperature fluctuations are found to have a crucial influence on the kinetic energy amplification across the shock. A decrease in magnitude is observed during the interaction for the velocity cross-correlation. The balance equation of this quantity is investigated and the terms responsible for this behaviour are identified. The shear stress effect upon fluctuating vorticity and the dissipation length scale is also presented. Thermodynamic fluctuations are finally analyzed, showing the departure from the isentropic state in the sheared situation compared to the isotropic one.
