Abstract:

A study was made of a steady near sonic flow of gas in the absence of friction and heat transfer. As an example, a streamlined wedge was studied with a detached shock wave with the assumption that the velocity of the stream slightly exceeds the velocity of sound at infinity and the wedge has a small included angle. As a result of numerical calculations, the distribution of pressure over the profile, the location and shape of the shock wave and the equations of the sonic line are found.
