what you have said pleasantly hold for a neck like ___________ ___________ > where r is large.

but does it also hold for a neck where the neck radius is quite in my case the -- --> _________ flow ---<_________ - ---> |

| i have

to apply the turning here.

at r->0

(1). In the book "elements of gasdynamics" by Liepmann and Roshko, published by John Wiley & Sons, exercise of Chapter 12, problem 12.3, it says "Show that in the expansion over the shoulder of an axially symmetric body the pressure change is given by the two-dimensional, Prandtl-Meyer theory. Hint:Just at the shoulder,(1/w)*(dw/ds) is much greater than (sin(theta))/r." (2). The equation of motion for axially symmetric flow is given by equation-12.10. See Chapter-12, the method of characteristics. (3). In other words, 2-D Prandtl-Meyer theory (or approximation) is good for axially symmetric flow over the shoulder.

(1). Small is relative. As long as it is not "zero", it should be all right. (2). After all, it is just one local area. (3). I am getting the feeling that if you still have the question, then it is better to buy a commercial CFD code and then ask additional questions in the commercial codes forum. (just a joke) Don't be afraid of trying out different approaches. You may also want to try the MOC , because it is the exact method for supersonic inviscid flow.
