Abstract

The global behavior of Fanno processes is examined for dense gases. It is shown that three sonic points corresponding to two local maxima and one local minimum in the entropy can occur if the fluid is of the Bethe-Zel'dovich-Thompson type. Both analytical and numerical examples of the nonclassical behavior are provided.
