conical flow

conical flow

[′kän·ə·kəl ′flō]
(fluid mechanics)
Steady supersonic flow of a perfect, inviscid gas past a conical solid body in a region of the flow field where the principal physical quantities such as velocity, pressure, and density are constant on rays passing through a fixed point. Also known as cone flow.

Instead of conventional conical flow channels, GWDS dies use cylindrical ones at the end of the die.
He introduces key concepts and generalized function theory; elaborates on the Euler equations and definitions and assumptions used throughout the treatment; discusses the theory in relation to one-dimensional and quasi-one-dimensional Euler equations; applies shock fitting techniques to two-dimensional flows, specifically in reference to the problems of the classical blunt body problem, conical flow over an external corner, and steady supersonic flow; and considers current and future developments in shock-fitting methods within the context of unstructured grid methods.
