 November 21, 2004, 18:49 shock tube validation #1 AB Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, I have done a shock tube analysis in Star-CD and I need to validate it. Can some one tell me how to validate my results with analytical results or from the shock tables. What all variables do I need to check for validation and what pressures should I look for. I have some idea and I need some other tips from u to extend it. Regarding validating shock tube, I would just go to the normal shock tables in which property ratios are tabulated as a function of Mach number. Find total pressure ratio on the table and see what M1, M2, T2/T1, etc. that corresponds to. For example, for Pt2/Pt1=0.4990, M1=2.50, M2=0.5130, T2/T1=2.137, Ps2/Ps1=7.125, and D2/D1=V1/V2=3.333 (D=density). V1 = M1*sqrt(gam*Rgas*T1) V2 = V1 / (V1/V2) shock speed = V1 - V2 But I have given a pressure and temp to one side of a tube and different pressure and temp to other side . what scalar data should I look for in my results ?? Can someone help me!!! Thanks, AB

You can get some IC from Toro, Riemann Problems and Numerical Methods for fluid dynamics. This book also gives fortran code for exact solution of shock tube problem which can be used for comparison.
