The files provides the numerical procedures used to solve oblique shock relation and Taylor-Maccoll equation. 4th-order Runge-Kutta numerical scheme is employed to implicitly solve the Taylor-Maccoll equations.
Inverse approach is used (J.D. Anderson, Modern Compressible Flow, Section 10.4)
Properties of the flow are calculated for
- A supersonic Mach number
- Zero pitch and yaw
- An in-viscid, perfect gas
Note - The generated shock wave is 3D in nature but as the shock is locally planar, thus is treated locally by the use of 2D oblique shock theory.
