Supersonic flow past an expansion corner - Expansion fan

Expansion corner

In this tutorial, we simulate the flow past an expansion corner. The inlet Mach number is 2.5, and the expansion corner angle is 15 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 steady solvers with high-speed compressible flow.
  • Computing the Mach number.
  • Sampling and plotting
