We present a high resolution numerical solution of the Vasilev reflection configuration within the framework of depth averaged two-dimensional inviscid shallow water flow. The study provides the details of the steady flow field and shockwave pattern close to the triple point which confirm the four-wave theory. The shape of the reflected shock in the region upstream of the supercritical patch is also investigated.

Abstract

We present a high resolution numerical solution of the Vasilev reflection configuration within the framework of depth averaged two-dimensional inviscid shallow water flow. The study provides the details of the steady flow field and shockwave pattern close to the triple point which confirm the four-wave theory. The shape of the reflected shock in the region upstream of the supercritical patch is also investigated.
