Shock reflection/diffraction over pyramid

D 29 August 2009    


Case description

An unsteady shock wave (travelling Mach = 2.85) impacts a pyramid obstacle. A first reflexion occurs and then the shock is diffracted by the expansion from the spike of this pyramid. The 90 degrees corner trigger a separation.

Numerical parameters

  • 600k quad mesh
  • second ordre MUSCL
  • HLLC scheme
