1 Ch4 Oblique Shock and Expansion Waves
4.1 Introduction Supersonic flow over a corner.

2 4.2 Oblique Shock Relations
…Mach angle (stronger disturbances) A Mach wave is a limiting case for oblique shocks. i.e. infinitely weak oblique shock

3 Oblique shock wave geometry
Given : Find : or

4 Galilean Invariance : The tangential component of the flow velocity is preserved. Superposition of uniform velocity does not change static variables. Continuity eq : Momentum eq : parallel to the shock The tangential component of the flow velocity is preserved across an oblique shock wave Normal to the shock

5 Energy eq : The changes across an oblique shock wave are governed by the normal component of the free-stream velocity.

6 Same algebra as applied to the normal shock equction
For a calorically perfect gas and Special case normal shock Note:changes across a normal shock wave the functions of M1 only changes across an oblique shock wave the functions of M1 &

8 For =1.4 (transparancy or Handout)

9 Note : 1. For any given M1 ,there is a maximum deflection angle If no solution exists for a straight oblique shock wave shock is curved & detached, 2. If strong shock solution (large ) M2 is subsonic weak shock solution (small ) M2 is supersonic except for a small region near , there are two values of β for a given M1

11 4.3 Supersonic Flow over Wedges and Cones
Straight oblique shocks 3-D flow, Ps P2. Streamlines are curved. 3-D relieving effect. Weaker shock wave than a wedge of the same , P2, , T2 are lower Integration (Taylor & Maccoll’s solution, ch 10) The flow streamlines behind the shock are straight and parallel to the wedge surface. The pressure on the surface of the wedge is constant = P2 Ex 4.4 Ex 4.5 Ex4.6

12 4.4 Shock Polar –graphical explanations
c.f Point A in the hodograph plane represents the entire flowfield of region 1 in the physical plane.

13 Shock polar Increases to (stronger shock) Locus of all possible velocities behind the oblique shock Nondimensionalize Vx and Vy by a* (Sec 3.4, a*1=a* adiabatic ) Shock polar of all possible for a given


15 Important properties of the shock polar
For a given deflection angle , there are 2 intersection points D&B (strong shock solution) (weak shock solution) tangent to the shock polarthe maximum lefleation angle for a given For no oblique shock solution 3. Point E & A represent flow with no deflection Mach line normal shock solution Shock wave angle 5. The shock polars for different mach numbers.

23 4.7 Intersection of Shocks of Opposite Families
C&D:refracted shocks (maybe expansion waves) Assume shock A is stronger than shock B a streamline going through the shock system A&C experience or a different entropy change than a streamline going through the shock system B&D 1. and have (the same direction. In general they differ in magnitude. ) Dividing streamline EF (slip line) If coupletely sysmuetric no slip line

24 Assume and are known & are known
if solution if Assume another

25 4.8 Intersection of Shocks of the same family
Will Mach wave emanate from A & C intersect the shock ? Point A supersonic intersection Point C Subsonic

27 4.9 Mach Reflection ( for ) ( for ) A straight oblique shock A regular reflection is not possible Much reflection Flow parallel to the upper wall & subsonic for M2

28 4.10 Detached Shock Wave in Front of a Blunt Body
From a to e , the curved shock goes through all possible oblique shock conditions for M1. CFD is needed

29 4.11 Three – Dimensional Shock Wave
Immediately behind the shock at point A Inside the shock layer , non – uniform variation.

30 4.12 Prandtl – Meyer Expansion Waves
Expansion waves are the antithesis of shock waves Centered expansion fan Some qualitative aspects : M2>M1 2. 3. The expansion fan is a continuous expansion region. Composed of an infinite number of Mach waves. Forward Mach line : Rearward Mach line : 4. Streamlines through an expansion wave are smooth curved lines.

31 i.e. The expansion is isentropic. ( Mach wave)
Consider the infinitesimal changes across a very weak wave. (essentially a Mach wave) An infinitesimally small flow deflection.
