Abstract:

Flow properties of pseudo-stationary oblique-shock-wave reflections are given as solutions of two-shock and three-shock theories. The calculations were performed for Argon, air, Carbon dioxide and sulfur hexafluoride using both frozen and vibrational equilibrium gas assumptions. The flow properties are tabulated for initial shock Mach numbers 1.2 Incident Shock Mach Number 10.0 and wedgfe angles 1 deg actual wedge angle 85 deg. The flow properties are plotted as a function of the incident shock Mach number for a series of wedge angles for both regular and Mach reflections. Another set of graphs is presented for Mach reflection with the flow properties plotted against the effective wedge angle effective wedge angles for a series of shock Mach numbers. The latter set is used when the effective wedge angle is chosen as the parameter for comparison. The second triple-point system, which exists only in double-Mach reflection, is solved numerically for the first time, and the solutions are presented both in tabular and graphical forms. The tables and graphs are designed to serve the analyst and experimenter working on oblique-shock-wave reflections. Keywords Oblique shock wave reflections Regular reflection Mach reflection Numerical and graphical solutions Frozen and equilibrium flows. Canada
