This AGARDograph presents a comprehensive, up to date review of the shock wave boundary layer interaction problem. A detailed physical description of the phenomena for transonic and supersonic speed regimes is given based on experimental observations, correlations, and theoretical concepts. Approaches for solving the problem are then reviewed in depth. Specifically, these include global methods developed to predict sudden changes in boundary layer properties integral or finite difference methods developed to predict the continuous evolution of a boundary layer encountering a pressure field induced by a shock wave coupling methods to predict entire flow fields analytical methods such as multi-deck techniques and finite difference methods for solving the time dependent Reynolds averaged Navier Stokes equations used to predict the development of entire flow fields. Examples are presented to illustrate the status of the various methods and some discussion is devoted to delineating their advantages and shortcomings. Reference citations for the wide variety of subject material are provided for readers interested in further study.
