Сalculation of supersonic flow around a wedge shaped body was considered as an example of the usage of the free open software code OpenFOAM with the application of solvers. The influence of incoming air flow velocity on the distribution of pressure, velocity, and temperature in the calculation area was studied. Numerical results and accurate solutions were compared, and the data obtained were analyzed.
