Shock tube problem
The test case involves the 1-D Euler equation describing the flow.The initial condition is given by
where diaphragm being located at
Two cases are considered and the flow is simulated using Roe first-order scheme and Steger-Warming vector splitting scheme.
- Case 1
- Case 2
The computational domain is .The boundary conditions are set equal to the intial conditions of the undisturbed gas.The computations are carried out with 600 grid points.
