Abstract:

A program was developed to compute the steady supersonic flow field of an inviscid, non-homenergetic, non-homentropic, compressible, calorically and thermally perfect gas which may or may not have imbedded shocks. The flow field may be either two-dimensional or axisymmetrical without swirl. The inception of imbedded shocks is detected by the coalescence of characteristics. In addition to computing the creation and development of several such shocks of the same family, the program computes the interaction and continuation of these shocks when they intersect. A maximum of five such shocks can be handled simultaneously, although this limit can be considerably increased with minor modifications. Author
