(fluid mechanics)
A shock wave inclined at an oblique angle to the direction of flow in a supersonic flow field. Also known as oblique shock.

oblique shock wave

oblique shock wave
A shock wave that forms on a sharp-pointed object moving through the air at a speed greater than the speed of sound. Air passing through an oblique shock wave is slowed down but if the wave angle is less than about 70°, it still will be supersonic. The area bounded by the sides of an oblique shock wave forms the Mach cone. Also known as an oblique shock. See also Mach cone.

The model design parameters are found by solving analytically using governing isentropic flow relations (1) (2) (3), oblique shock wave relations (4) (5) by following the shock-on-lip condition.

The inlet is designed in such a way that the oblique shock waves impinges at the cowl tip thereby increasing the mass flow rate (shock-on-lip condition).
26 m, a strong oblique shock wave train is formed, which may be caused by a great amount of heat release in this location and the oblique shock wave/boundary layer interaction.
There is also an oblique shock wave that starts from the leading edge of the cavity.
