 February 25, 2011, 11:23 Test problem for 1D isothermal Euler equations #1 New Member   santosh Join Date: Feb 2011 Posts: 2 Rep Power: 0 Hi All, Could someone suggest a test problem for the 1D Isothermal Euler equations? I know that the 1D Riemann (shock tube) problem is generally used.. but am having difficulty in understanding the "link" between pressure and density in the isothermal case.. can someone help me with this ? also please suggest any other test problems? thanks Hooman likes this.

In this case spatial gradient of entropy are allowed (ds/dt + u ds/dx = 0). In the classic Sod test you have one family of characteristic waves were the flow is omoentropic and Riemann invariant can be used, then the contact discontinuity and the shock wave are the other regions involved. What test are you looking for? Hooman likes this.
