## Oblique Shock Examples

Solution

The find maximum wedge angle for ( ) has to be equal to zero. The wedge angle that satisfies this requirement by equation (13.28) is the solution (a side to the case proximity of ). The maximum values are:
 4.0000 0.97234 38.7738 66.0407
<>

To obtain the results of the weak and the strong solutions, utilize either equation (13.28) or the Potto-GDC, which yields the following results:

 4.0000 0.48523 2.5686 1.4635 0.56660 0.34907

Solution

The measurement shows that cone angle is and shock angle is . With given two angle the solution can be obtained utilizing equation (13.59) or the Potto-GDC.

 3.2318 0.56543 2.4522 71.0143 30.0990 14.4300 0.88737

Because the flow is around Cone it must be a weak shock. Even if the cone was a wedge, the shock will be weak because the maximum (transition to a strong shock) occurs at about . Note that Mach number is larger than the predicted by the wedge.
