What are shock interaction regimes?

  1. Nov 2, 2014 #1
    I have been asked to determine the "shock regime" of a oblique shock / bow shock interaction based on the angle of the impinging shock and flow conditions. What does this mean?

    My initial thoughts were that I was being asked to determine whether the shock was strong or weak, but since the conditions are hypersonic that's not really a very interesting question.

    What is a "shock regime"?

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
