Nearly every experiment on shock-wave propagation uses plane waves. Cylindrical and spherical waves are more difficult to produce, usually decay fast and do not offer any particular advantages. In magneto-fluid dynamics, however, it is possible to produce cylindrical waves easily and the axisymmetric geometry is a natural choice to study motion across magnetic field lines.
