It can be seen in the literature that the fundamental factors governing oblique shock wave development, typically in very large channels with straight sidewalls, have not yet been completely understood and remain at the level of indicating its presence and formation. In this study, in addition to an analysis of various properties of hydraulic jump behaviour in very large channels, some aspects of boundary layer development and its detachment from the channel lateral sidewall are also investigated. At the detachment point of the lateral shock waves, it was noted that the displacement thickness experiences a significant increase; this is accompanied by a significantly reduced gradient normal to the channel sidewalls of the flow velocity as well as the occurrence of a strong, sudden adverse pressure gradient. An analysis of the flow velocity distribution and the background turbulence intensity of both the streamwise and spanwise velocity components was also carried out. Furthermore, it is argued that the supersonic flow separation analogy with a supercritical free surface flow can be applied to this case study and that the behaviour of the supercritical flow during separation can be interpreted by the free interaction theory typically used in aerodynamics.
