The steady, two-dimensional interaction of an oblique shock with a laminar flat-plate boundary layer has been examined through use of the Beam-Warming implicit scheme. A wide range of fluids is considered as are freestream pressures corresponding to dense gases, i.e., gases at pressures which are so large that the ideal gas law is no longer accurate. The results, when combined with the triple-deck theory of Kluwick (1994), provides strong support for the idea that the classical scaling laws can be extended to dense gases.
