Inviscid unsteady transonic flow in a two-dimensional channel is analyzed using asymptotic techniques. The analysis includes the case where a shock wave is present in a channel having arbitrary wall shape, with artibrary small disturbances imposed at a given downstream location. Second-order solutions are not uniformly valid near the shock wave, since they do not satisfy the shock jump conditions. It is therefore necessary to obtain inner solutions which are matched asymptotically to those in the outer channel-flow region.
