## Supersonic Flow Past a Wedge

## Supersonic Flow Past a Wedge

This verification test case studies steady inviscid compressible flow past a wedge at an incident angle of 15 degrees. As the supersonic flow (Ma = 2.5) hits the wedge a sharp oblique shock wave is formed, resulting in a reduced downstream flow velocity. The simulation uses the inviscid compressible Euler equations to …

## Potential Flow Over an Airfoil

## Potential Flow Over an Airfoil

This example models and simulates the flow field around the cross section of a NACA airfoil using the inviscid potential equation. The potential field is here modeled with the classic Laplace PDE equation with a correction for the discontinuity at the trailing edge (the Kutta condition). On the boundaries, there is …

## Supersonic Flow Over an Obstacle

## Supersonic Flow Over an Obstacle

Steady inviscid flow over a cylindrical bump using the compressible Euler equations. The flow at the inlet is supersonic with Ma = 1.4 resulting in a series of reflected shock waves as the flow hits the obstacle]. The obstacle could represent anything from a protrusion on an aircraft wing to a structural feature in a …
