Abstract

Guderley theoretical model [1, 2] for weak shock wave reflection is a well-known way to overcome the von Neumann paradox within the gas dynamic framework. Recent Euler calculations [3] confirmed conceptual issues of Guderley theory for steady shock reflection. An expansion fan and a local supersonic patch were found behind the triple point. A numerical simulation based on the shock fitting technique was used in that study. Ivanov et al. [4], however, did not reveal any supersonic patches in Euler computations based on both the shock-fitting and shock-capturing techniques. Tesdall et al. [5] discovered a sequence of supersonic patches and triple points along the Mach stem for unsteady shock reflection. The results of numerical simulation showed a sequence of triple points and tiny supersonic patches behind the leading triple point. Another interesting result was also obtained in [6] within the framework of depth-averaged two-dimensional inviscid shallow water flow model. The nested-block grid refinement technique was used in those studies to achieve high resolution of the computational mesh. A supercritical patch was discovered. Thus, at the present time, the question about the supersonic patch structure is still open.
