A classification of the possible types of shock-wave structures formed as a result of the interference between overtaking shocks in a homogeneous flow is developed on the basis of a previous study . A series of analytic and numerical interaction type criteria is obtained, which makes it possible to justify and supplement the analysis, carried out in , of the regions of the governing flow parameters in which steady-state solutions for shock-wave structures of different types exist. The calculations are found to be consistent with the known experimental data.
