Analytical solution of flow field for weak Mach reflection over plane surface
Concerned here with the analytical solution of flow field of single weak Mach reflection caused by an advancing plane shock wave over a simple wedge surface. We develop an improvement of Lighthill’s linearized theory in the correction due to the non-linearity of the flow field through a singular perturbation. Obtained expressions including the one for the triple point path are compared resonably well with existing experimental, computational and theoretical results.
