Shock-Based Waverider Design

Title: Shock-Based Waverider Design with Pressure Gradient Corrections and Computational Simulations

Waveriders demonstrate good aerodynamic performance and thus are of special interest for hypersonic applications, especially for engine-airframe integration. The osculating cones waverider method is a generic shock-based derived waverider design method that allows prescribing a wide variety…
