Interference of nonstationary oblique shock waves


Special features of calculation of the flow parameters behind a nonstationary oblique shock wave moving in a stream of absolutely nonviscous gas are considered. The wave intensity at which the stream behind the shock wave may exhibit singularities is determined. The problem of calculating a nonstationary shock wave configuration formed during the interaction of a supersonic jet with an obstacle is solved.
