 September 14, 2007, 01:19 nozzle boundary condition #1 Shuo Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am solving the 1-D Euler equation using upwind methods for flow through a divergent nozzle. Three cases were tested:subsonic flow, supersonic flow and flow with shock. The subsonic inlet boundary condition produced incorrect result for the subsonic flow. B.C. & Density & Velocity & Pressure | Subsonic inlet & Fixed? & Float? & Fixed | Supersonic inlet & Fixed & Fixed & Fixed | Subsonic outlet & Float & Float & Fixed | Supersonic outlet & Float & Float & Float | Can anyone please advise me on this? Thanks, Shuo

Static pressure for example. With the rest coming from the inlet, in 1D there are only 2 left, so let's say for example total pressure and velocity.

For the inlet I fixed rho and P and u. I read from Anderson (modern compressible flow with historical perspective) that using the method of characteristics you should let one variable float (ie.u) at the inlet. i tried this and the solution was wrong. Why is this? Shuo
