 February 7, 2003, 04:14 About a test case of Woodward and Collela #1 Praveen Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I need help with a test case of Woodward and Collela (JCP, 1988). This is the Mach 10 flow over a 30 degree wedge. In the actual implementation the coordinate frame is rotated by 30 degrees so that we can take a rectangular computational domain and the initial shock angle is 60 deg. I want to first verify whether I have got the initial conditions correct. Pre shock (ahead of the shock) Density = 1.4 Pressure= 1.0 u = v = 0.0 Post shock (behind the shock) Density = 8.0 Pressure= 116.5 u = 8.25*cos(30) v = -8.25*sin(30) At the top boundary the shock is cutting at 60 deg and we have to specify the exact solution on this boundary. The speed of the point at which the shock is cutting the top boundary is 10*cos(30) ? With these conditions my computations are giving a mismatch between the shock speed that I specify on the top boundary and the speed obtained in the interior by the numerical scheme; the interior speed is larger than the speed specified at the top.
