in a high speed compressible flow where there may be shocks forming, what size density ratios might i get?

would these density ratios be bigger than i would get in a low speed combustion system?

Get an aerodynamcis or fluids book from your library, go to the supersonic chapters, and find some of the simple flows that can be solved analytically - with your electronic calculator (or slide rule).

Put some numbers in and calculate the density ratio (also pressure and temperature ratios) across a shock. And you can calculate the shock location. Now you have your answer - and the first test case for your code!

your answer is not overly helpful for a beginner in the subject ...

I disagree with you, Jim Park gave you the most correct answer, do your home work and learn the basics
