A standard finite element procedure has been applied to the problem of transonic shock wave – boundary layer interaction at a convex wall. The method is based on the analytical Bohning-Zierep model, where the boundary layer is perturbed by a weak normal shock wave which shows a singular pressure gradient at the curved edge of the boundary layer. In the present numerical method the application of a power law velocity distribution at the upstream end of the boundary layer has been abandoned and a more realistic distribution is applied. The results are compared to other numerical solutions and to experimental results. The differences are discussed together with the limitations introduced by the method.
