A cyclone which forms and moves along a front; the circulation about the cyclone center tends to produce a wavelike deformation of the front. Also known as wave depression.
Wave drag is caused because of shock induced boundary layer separation that results in temperature rise and because of formation of number of shocklets when the airflow over the body becomes supersonic.
