Alternate Set-up: Oblique Shock in rhoCentralFOAM

I have already done a post on supersonic flow over 23 degree wedge. In that post, we were intentionally creating a situation where the shock wave would be detached from the obstacle. The set-up in that case is certainly appropriate when the shock is attached as well. However it is possible to use an even simpler set up for an attached oblique shock.

Pressure Driven Nozzle Flow with Shock – rhoCentralFoam

In this post I will go over the set up and solution of a pressure driven nozzle flow with a shock located in the diverging section. This refers to the type of flow problem described by region b in my page covering stationary normal shock-waves.
