Default HLL Riemann Shock Tube Matlab Problem

Hi There.

I am trying to write a simple code in MATLAB for an air-air shock tube using Godunov's method and the HLL Flux. I am using the ideal gas equation of state, and also assuming constant specific heats so we have P=RT*rho and e=(5/2)RT.

My present code is having problems and I think it may be me misunderstanding the Godunov/HLL Flux. Please, could someone look at my code and help me out. See below.

Thanks for the help

Dx=0.001; %Length of the Cells Dt=1*10^(-7); %Timestep N=1000; %Number of cells = 2N T=300; %Number of Timesteps R=287.05; %Specific Gas Constant for air

P_A=zeros(2*N,1); %Air Pressure of shock tube T_A=zeros(2*N,1); %Air Temperature of shock tube rho_A=zeros(2*N,1); %Air density of shock tube u_A=zeros(2*N,1); %Air velocity profile of shock tube c_A=zeros(2*N,1); %Air sound velocity profile of shock tube

Hi,

I am looking into kind of similar problem.
Just wanted to know, were you able to crack out the problem?

Thanks
