Oblique Shock

The amount of information for oblique shock to be presented is extremely large. For example in NASA report tn-d-2221 is over 150 pages when the mesh is about medium density. Even slight increase of the mesh will run the page to extremely large amount. To combat this problem, information that depends on one parameter is tabulated while the two-parameters information is presented in figures so the usefulness is not lost.
