Abstract

In this paper, we establish the global existence of supersonic entropy solutions with a strong contact discontinuity over a Lipschitz wall governed by the two-dimensional steady exothermically reacting Euler equations, when the total variation of both the initial data and slope of the Lipschitz wall is sufficiently small. Local and global estimates are developed and a modified Glimm-type functional is carefully designed. Next the validation of the quasi-one-dimensional approximation in the domain bounded by the wall and the strong contact discontinuity is rigorous justified by proving that the difference between the average of weak solution and the solution of quasi-one-dimensional system can be bounded by the square of the total variation of both the initial data and slope of the Lipschitz wall.
