This paper will explain the numerical analysis and the mapping of the flow in a confined region. In this paper some characteristics of non-steady, compressible, flow are explored, including compression and expansion wave interactions and creation. The results will show a promising achievement, first, to understand the flow structure inside a supersonic confined region, second, to use this knowledge to interpolate the numerical results in order to achieve a design methodology that will benefit the industrial applications for example in turbomachinery. Results including contour plots of static pressure, total pressure, and Mach number will show the structure of oblique shock waves in a complex three-dimensional conical surface. A CFD analysis enables one to understand the complex flow structure inside this confined region. Through this computational analysis, a better interpretation of the physical phenomenon of the three dimensional rotting oblique shock waves can be achieved. It is essential to evaluate the ability of numerical technique that can solve problems in which compression and expansion waves occur. In particular it is necessary to understand the details of developing a mesh that will allow resolution of some discontinuities in similar flow.
