Use of Weno Schemes for Simulation of the Reflected Shock Wave–Boundary Layer Interaction

  • P. V. Bulat
  • K. N. Volkov

Numerical simulation of the shock wave–laminar boundary layer interaction is carried out on the basis of the model problem at different Reynolds numbers. The use of WENO schemes of high order of accuracy is demonstrated. The calculated shock-wave structure of the fl ow is compared with the data available in the literature and with the data obtained from TVD schemes. Criteria of accuracy of numerical calculations that are related to the position of shock-wave structures, and also the time of solution of the problem with various difference schemes, are discussed. Recommendations on practical use of difference schemes of high order of accuracy are given.
