The work to be presented herein is a Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis of flow over a 15-degree angle double wedge for a compressible air, with Mach number of 2.95. The problem to be solved involves formation of shock waves, expansion fans and slip surfaces, so that the general characteristics of supersonic flow are explored through this problem. Shock waves and slip surfaces are discontinuities in fluid mechanics problems. It is essential to evaluate the ability of numerical technique that can solve problems in which shocks and contact surfaces occur. In particular it is necessary to understand the details of developing a mesh that will allow resolution of these discontinuities. Results including contour plots of pressure, temperature, density and Mach number will show that CFD is capable of predicting accurate results and is also able to capture the discontinuities in the flow, e.g., the oblique shock waves and the slip surfaces. The global comparison of some parameters between the numerical and the analytical values show a good agreement.
