A multiplicity of regimes of transonic flow in channels with branching

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The flow in 2D channel with a flat plate located along the plane of symmetry of the channel at a certain distance from the inlet was numerically studied. Straight segments formed the channel walls. At the inlet and the outlet of the channel, a supersonic flow was set. The first and third parts of the channel diverged. The middle part converged. Solutions to the Euler equations were obtained using the Ansys CFX finite volume solver. Four solutions were found that differed in the position of the shock waves. The hysteresis in the shock wave position versus Mach number given at the inlet was found. In a certain range of the inlet Mach number, there were asymmetric solutions of the equations.
