Default characteristics-shock waves
Posts: n/a
is it possible to use the method of characteristics to capture a shock.could someone tell me how?

how will the characteristics look like on either side of the shock.Could my equations change from hyperbolic to eliptic across the shock?

i would appreciate it if someone could clarify the above pts.
