 May 31, 2007, 05:38 Non dimensional code #1 Giorgos Guest   Posts: n/a Hello everybody. I am writting a code for the solution of the Euler equations. Does anybody know how can I non-dimensionalise the Euler equations? (or a book describing the method) I think there are two ways. The first is to non-domensionalise the equations and the other is to non-dimensionalise the initial conditions. Thanks for the help

In the simplest case, you need a reference length, a reference velocity and a reference density. Regards, Markus

You can see many reference solutions with u=1, Rho = 1, P=1 etc. The key factor would be the ratio of specific heat. The key factor, as mentioned by one member, is the boundary condition. See to that you adhere to the non-dimensionalized BCs and the reference scales. The rest will fall in place. For example, ambient pressure can be 1, inlet velocity 1 etc. Example: Reference solutions for forward facing step at Mach 3. Regards, Shyam
