What are the characteristics of oblique Shockwave?

An oblique shock wave is a shock wave that, unlike a normal shock, is inclined with respect to the incident upstream flow direction. It will occur when a supersonic flow encounters a corner that effectively turns the flow into itself and compresses. The upstream streamlines are uniformly deflected after the shock wave.

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 (M1) and Specific heat ratio (κ) and hit the calculate button.

FAQ

What is 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 and is represented as θ=atan((2*cot(β)*(((M1*sin(β))^2)-1))/(((M1^2)*(κ+cos(2*β)))+2)) or 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)). Oblique shock angle is defined as the angle between the shock and the resultant velocity upstream of the shock, Mach Number ahead of shock is the Mach number over the body before a shockwave has occurred and The Specific heat ratio is the ratio of the heat capacity at constant pressure to heat capacity at constant volume.
