supersonic wedge
am having trouble modelling a simple wedge shape supersonically. am looking for results to realte to the compressible flow tables. have looked at wedge example, but am no wiser as how to actually set it up! any help/advice welcomed. Thanks

Re: supersonic wedge
The wholly-supersonic wedge-cascade example uses a dimensionless system of units, as explained in the following references:
