Abstract:

An analytical investigation and a numerical procedure are presented for calculating the fully viscous shock-layer flow near the sharp leading edge of both two-dimensional and axisymmetric slender bodies uses an implicit finite-difference technique in conjunction with wall slip boundary conditions the shock structure is determined as part of the resulting solution. The mathematical model involves a more complete and accurate set of governing equations and boundary conditions.
