Abstract:

The paper deals with the development of a method for calculating supersonic flow past blunt bodies with a detached shock wave. The first section contains a formulation of the problem of supersonic flow past a blunt body of an arbitrary shape and an investigation of basic gas-dynamics equations. A method is given for the selection of a differential system for solving a boundary problem. This is followed by sections on the construction of an algorithm for the numerical solution of a boundary value problem in a mixed region and on the method of solving a nonlinear problem. The final section gives examples illustrating the solution of different problems of flow past bodies of different shapes with a detached shock wave.
