Hi, im doin supersonic and hypersonic flow over a 2D wedge and 3D cone.
I've used symmetry and axisymmetric condition for them to save computational time.

I'm interested in finding the detached shock when the wedge/cone angle exceeds the max. angle. However, i cant seem to get a converged solution and the shock cant seem to detach.

Im using inviscid model, implicit, 2nd order model to run fluent.

Can anyone tell me what settings i need to input to be able to get a satisfactory result?
