Conference paper


Shock-wave systems consisted of three stationary shocks with common (triple) point T (Fig. 1,a–e) are called triple configurations. The slipstream (τ) emanates from the triple point and divides the streams that have gone through the sequence of shocks 1–2 and through the alone (main) shock 3 at another side of the triple point.

Fig. 1. Classification of the triple configurations and their parameters Flow downstream the shock 3 in both optimal’ basic’ and’ alternative’ configurations is subsonic. This promotes the reverse influence on the system from the obstacle downstream and do not prevent the appearance of self-oscillating regimes.
