Roe scheme for general equation of state
Are there papers about Roe average and Roe scheme for general equation of state ? For example, pressure can be written as function of density and entropy, pressure=p(density,entropy).

Re: Roe scheme for general equation of state
Is it necessary to use Roe average and Roe scheme in case of some unusual EOS?
Alternative way is to use approximate characteristicbased Riemann solvers instead. One of them (referred as LCS) can be found at www.geocities.com/MotorCity/Pit/9939/freecfd.htm  a source code in C and short description in PostScript. Generalization of the solution procedure will affect the way you compute speed of sound c_s = c_s( pressure, entropy ) = sqrt( dp / dr )  the particular EOS is needed! Best wishes, Andrei 
Re: Roe scheme for general equation of state
For a general EOS, the Roe average becomes nonunique. A oneparameter family can be found. Most papers on this subject deal with the problem of what is the "best" choice. In practice, most of them work well.
I dont have the references handy, but the authors are: 1) P. Glaister, JCP. 2) J. S. Shuen, B. Ban Leer, M. S. Liou, JCP 3) B. Larrotoru. 4) M. Vinokur and Liu. JCP Hope this helps. A. Suresh
