In Equation (3) [theta] is the wave angle, is the distance, and is the energy fraction
The separation of the boundary layer is critical for a hypersonic inlet operation because it induces changes in shock wave angle and in pressure recovery as well as increments in heat transfer while it may lead to chocked flow, resulting in flow spillage and even in unstart of the engine [20].
The wave angle for the two wedges is 39.2 deg and 53 deg respectively.
The laboratory experiments and numerical simulations found that the normalized stem wave heights became larger as the incident wave angle increases or the nonlinearity of the incident waves decreases.
where [theta] = [theta](x, y) = the wave angle and i, j = unit vectors in x and y directions, respectively.
The vertical radiation pattern determines the wave angle of the antenna; the wave angle is the angle at which the radiation is maximized.
Simulations with XBeach in 2DH show that the alongshore current and its interaction with the cross-shore processes lead to significantly more dune erosion, and that the coastal orientation with respect to the wave angle also plays an important role.
The incident plane wave angles satisfy [theta] = 0[degrees] and [phi] = 0[degrees].
