Default Calculation of gamma
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

Does anyone know exactly how FLUENT calculates gamma (the ratio of specific heats: Cp/Cv)? I looked in the manual and couldn't find anything on it. I am using a piecewise linear variation of Cp with temperature, but am getting slightly strange values of gamma output (I'm expecting about 1.29 and am getting about 1.31).
