Abstract

A numerical code based on the upwind TVD scheme for simulating the various reflection processes of a planar shock wave over a concave or convex double wedge has been developed. The numerical results were compared with actual experiments and excellent agreement was obtained. The excellent agreement serves also as a validation of the shock‐capturing performance of the numerical scheme.
