Abstract

Hypersonic flow past delta wings with a V-shaped cross-section has been investigated both theoretically and experimentally. Much attention is given to the examination and classification of possible conical flow patterns in the vicinity of the windward surface using the thin shock layer method. Solutions for shocks both attached to and detached from the leading edges them are obtained. It is shown that qualitatively new flow patterns can appear in the flow past V-shaped wings as compared with the case of a planar wing.
