 October 19, 2006, 07:17 Shocked flow #1 Panagiotis Guest   Posts: n/a I am trying to run a shocked flow case in an 1D-Euler code with subsonic inlet and outlet. The solver of the flow equations is a MUSCL Flux vector splitting. However, the code does not converge. Is there an extra boundary condition on the wave?

 October 19, 2006, 09:04 Re: Shocked flow #2 simon Guest   Posts: n/a I'm not sure what bc's you are applying, but for a subsonic inlet and subsonic outlet you need to specify 2 characteristics at the inlet and 1 characteristic at the outlet, so for your 1D problem I would specify stagnation pressure and stagnation temperature at the inlet and static pressure at the outlet. I'm not sure what you mean by running a 'shocked flow case' though - you can get a normal shock forming but this is dependent upon your geometry ( do you have a convergent or a convergent-divergent nozzle perhaps ? ) and pressure ratio ( which you are specifying by prescribing P0 upstream and Pstatic downstream ). Does this help ?, Simon.

 October 19, 2006, 09:08 Re: Shocked flow #3 Panagiotis Guest   Posts: n/a These are the bc's I am using. The geometry is a convergent-divergent nozzle. I am specifying the pressure ratio by giving as an input the isentropic Mach number.
