Current capabilities for numerical simulation of laminar shock-shock interactions are examined. Two fundamental configurations are considered the Edney IV shock-shock interaction and the crossing oblique-shock interaction generated by a double wedge configuration. Two cases for each configuration were examined by a distinguished group of international researchers using the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes RANS equations and Direct Simulation Monte Carlo DSMC methods. The report presents an extensive comparison of the submitted computations and experimental data.
