High-order implicit Large Eddy Simulations were conducted to study shock-boundary layer interaction around a 33° compression corner at Mach 7.2 and Reynolds number of Reθ = 3,500 based on the momentum thickness. A grid-convergence study was performed to reduce the computational uncertainty and the results were compared with experiments and theoretical predictions. Furthermore, the turbulent flow properties were analysed with respect to the Reynolds normal stress, skewness and flatness, and conclusions were drawn regarding the shock boundary layer interaction behavior.
