Good evening fellow users !

This is at the stage of a thought at the moment, but based on the answers, i'll probably build a simple problem.

Is it possible to simulate the shockwave in a fluid ? The practical purpose would be simulating the shockwaves form an electrical fault arc inside the tank of the transformer and to find out some kind of pressure distribution on the walls.Theoretically i can find out the energy and the total time of the arc.The fluid would need to be compressible i think and the run should be transient.

Thanks !
