Abstract

This study employs the Space-Time Conservation Element and Solution Element (CE/SE) method to determine the influence of downstream flow conditions on Mach stem height. The results indicate that the Mach stem height depends on the incident shock wave angle and the distance between the trailing edge and the symmetry plane. Furthermore, it is shown that the downstream length ratio and the trailing edge angle do not affect the Mach stem height nor the Mach reflection (MR) configuration, and the Space-Time Conservation Element and Solution Element method is able to simulate the MR as well as many other numerical schemes.
