VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday starting Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 25, through Sunday Nov. 29, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience.
Exact Solutions for Sonic Shocks in Van Der Waals Gases
Exact closed-form solutions for finite amplitude sonic shocks are presented for the case of a van der Waals gas having a constant specific heat. Solutions are provided for both single and double sonic shocks. Sample calculations are presented that include sonic shocks embedded in smooth inviscid flows.
