Default Mach Cone FAR from BODY (exact/true properties)
Dwight Altman
Posts: n/a
I am interested in understanding the real natural mach cone (not oversimplified incorrect inviscid models) and atmospheric properties "far" from the supersonic body over time. Such as:

How large does the mach cone "grow"? How does it dissipate? How does it affect the atmosphere? How does nose geometry affect the mach cone or cone-like formation?

Which inexpensive/free code or codes would you recommend I start with? I hope to run the software on an Intel Pentium I (100MHz) using Linux or MS Windows. (You'd be surprised what I can run on this machine).

Regards, Dwight Altman
