__NORMAL AND OBLIQUE
SHOCKS__

**Normal Shocks**

When there is a relative motion between a body and fluid,
the disturbance is created if the disturbance is of an infinitely small
amplitude, that disturbance is transmitted through the fluid with the speed of
sound. If the disturbance is finite shock waves are created.

**Shock Waves and Expansion
Waves Normal Shocks**

Shocks which occur in a plane normal to the direction of
flow are called **normal** **shock waves. **Flow process through the
shock wave is highly irreversible and** ***cannot*** **be** **approximated
as being isentropic. Develop relationships for flow properties before and after
the shock using conservation of mass, momentum, and energy.

In some range of back pressure, the fluid that achieved a
sonic velocity at the throat of a converging-diverging nozzle and is
accelerating to supersonic velocities in the diverging section experiences a *normal
shock*. The normal shock causes a sudden rise in pressure and temperature
and a sudden drop in velocity to subsonic levels. Flow through the shock is
highly irreversible, and thus it cannot be approximated as isentropic. The
properties of an ideal gas with constant specific heats before (subscript 1)
and after (subscript 2*)* a shock are related by

**Assumptions
**

Ø Steady
flow and one dimensional

Ø dA =
0, because shock thickness is small

Ø Negligible
friction at duct walls since shock is very thin

Ø Zero
body force in the flow direction

Ø Adiabatic
flow (since area is small)

Ø No
shaft work

Ø Potential
energy neglected

**Governing Equations:**

(i) Continuity

V_{x y} V_{y}
(Shock thickness being small A_{x} = A_{y}) G_{x} = G_{y}
(Mass velocity). Mass velocity remains constant across the shock.

(ii) Energy equation

To remains constant across the shock.

(iii)
Momentum

Newton’s second law

Impulse function remains
constant across the shock.

**Property relations across the shock.**

Property relations in terms of incident Mach Number M_{x}

Substituting and simplifying

Substituting (2) in (1), we have

**Prandtl-Meyer relationship**

**Governing relations for a normal shock**

**The Rankine – Hugoniot
Equatios**

Density Ratio Across the
Shock

We know that density,

the above eqn.s is knows
Rankine - Hugoniot equations.

**Strength of a Shock Wave**

It is defined as the ratio of difference in down stream
and upstream shock pressures (p* _{y}* - p

The strength of shock wave may be expressed in another
form using Rankine-Hugoniot equation.

From this equation we came to know strength of shock wave
is directly proportional to;
