Normal shock λ-foot topography at turbulent boundary layer
The normal shock λ-foot configuration at turbulent boundary layer has been investigated for M = 1.35 ÷ 1.47 and for Reδ = 5.5 ÷ 15.3 × 104. The flow structure in respect to the shocks’ inclination is discussed It is shown that λ-foot topography within the parameters range contradicts the generally accepted assumption of equal static pressure and flow direction on both sides of a slip line downstream the triple point. A new approach has been proposed which displays a very good agreement with the experimental results.
