Title:Non-existence of the von Neumann reflection configuration for the triple point paradox
Seminar:CCMA PDEs and Numerical Methods Seminar Series
Speaker:Wancheng Sheng, Shanghai University, China
In this talk, we will show that the von Neumann reflection configuration in which the Mach shock is smoothly merged into the incident shock at a point and the wave behind this point is smooth is a mathematically impossible flow pattern for the 2-D pseudo-steady potential flow equation and the 2-D pseudo-steady Euler equations.
