Supersonic flow onto solid wedges, multidimensional shock waves and free boundary problems

Abstract:

When an upstream steady uniform supersonic flow impinges onto a symmetric straight-sided wedge, governed by the Euler equations, there are two possible steady oblique shock configurations if the wedge angle is less than the detachment angle—the steady weak shock with supersonic or subsonic downstream flow (determined by the wedge angle that is less than or greater than the sonic angle) and the steady strong shock with subsonic downstream flow, both of which satisfy the entropy condition. The ...
