Supersonic flow past a wedge - Shock waves

Supersonic wedge

In this tutorial, we simulate a supersonic flow past a wedge. The inlet Mach number is 3, and the wedge angle is 20 degrees. You will learn about,

  • Running compressible flow simulations.
  • Running supersonic flow simulations.
  • Setting the thermophysical properties for the working fluid.
  • Setting a robust numeric for compressible-supersonic flow simulations.
  • How to use pseudo-transient solvers.
  • Computing the Mach number.
  • Capturing shock waves.
  • Sampling and plotting
