Heating of a Sharp Slender Wedge in Supersonic Flow


The problem of heating a sharp slender wedge suddenly submerged into high-temperature supersonic stream is considered when the laminar or turbulent heat transfer regime is implemented on the wedge surface. The behavior of the solution in the neighborhood of the singular point at the wedge nose is mathematically analyzed. The corresponding numerical solution of the problem is considered.
