Abstract

A type of shock fitting method is used to solve some two-dimensional shock reflection problems. Numerical results show that the convergence rate of the method is about second order. Comparisons with the Lax - Friedrichs scheme and the ENO scheme show that the results obtained by the shock fitting method are very accurate. The method is generalized to solve three-dimensional shock reflection problems, the numerical example shows that highly accurate results can also be obtained by the shock fitting method.
