Unformatted text preview: The shock is formed at A/A * =3.0, so the Mach number upstream of the shock is M 1 = 2 . 65 and the total pressure upstream of the shock is p 1 = 500 kPa. The shock tables give p 2 /p 1 = 0.44, therefore the total pressure downstream of the shock is p 2 =220 kPa. In case (a), the probe is placed downstream of the shock, where the velocity is subsonic. Since the probe is in a subsonic Fow, it cannot have any shocks on it so it measures the local value of the total pressure p 2 = 220 kPa. In case (b), the probe tip is ahead if the shock, so it is in supersonic Fow. The tip must have a shock wave formed around it. The strength of this shock is identical to the strength of the shock in the test section (since they both have the same upstream Mach number M 1 = 2 . 65). The probe measures again p 2 = 220 kPa. 1...
