How to Calculate Flow deflection angle?
Flow deflection angle calculator uses Flow Deflection angle=atan((2*cot(Oblique shock angle)*(((Mach Number ahead of shock*sin(Oblique shock angle))^2)-1))/(((Mach Number ahead of shock^2)*(Specific heat ratio+cos(2*Oblique shock angle)))+2)) to calculate the Flow Deflection angle, The Flow deflection angle is obtained using θ-β-M relation which is an interrelation between Flow deflection angle, Upstream Mach number, and Oblique Shock angle. Flow Deflection angle and is denoted by θ symbol.
How to calculate Flow deflection angle using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Flow deflection angle, enter Oblique shock angle (β), Mach Number ahead of shock (M_{1}) and Specific heat ratio (κ) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Flow deflection angle calculation can be explained with given input values -> -0.617143 = atan((2*cot(60)*(((1.5*sin(60))^2)-1))/(((1.5^2)*(1.392758+cos(2*60)))+2)).
