When an expansion fan is formed?

When a flow is turned away from itself, an expansion fan is formed. The expansion through the wave takes place across a continuous succession of Mach waves and entropy change is zero for each Mach wave, hence the expansion is isentropic.

What is forward and rearward Mach angle?

The forward Machangle is the angle formed between the forward Mach line and upstream direction of the flow. The rearward Mach angle is the angle formed between the rearward Mach line and downstream flow direction (parallel to convex corner).
