Its necessary for me to know rhoCentralCoam is suitable for a transient compressible high velocity around 300m/s flow with several moving shock waves and expansion fans?
Its density I correct?is it suitable for my case?can it trace shocks well?

I think the answer is yes for your four questions.

hi treima
do you know how can I add kOmegaSST model to rhoCentral Foam?
do you know any turbulent test case for this solver?because it differs from other solvers.or you know any description of its code?

There is a paper from Greenshields, Weller, Gasparini and Reese about the development of rhoCentralFoam:
"Implementation of semi-discrete, non-staggered central schemes in a collocated, polyhedral, finite volume framework, for high-speed viscous flows".

Perhaps you can find some answers to your questions in this paper!

can you send me the paper please?
Thank you.

I donīt have it here in a digital form at the moment.
But I think, you can find it on google!
