On two-dimensional flow after a curved stationary shock (with special reference to the problem of detached shock waves)

S. S. Shu
May 1951

The problem of two-dimensional flow behind a curved stationary shock wave is considered analytically. The method assumes a given shock-wave shape, which automatically determines certain initial conditions on the flow variables; and the flow pattern, including any body shape, follows from the initial conditions.
