Local heat-transfer and pressure increases due to shock wave interference are critical problems in structural designs for complicated hypersonic vehicles. Therefore, many experiments and computational simulations have been done to identify the critical shock interference phenomena [1, 2, 3]. Types of the shock interference were classified by Edney in Ref. [1]. His classification shows that some types are severe interference and the others types are not. The most critical interference is called Type IV.
