I am in dire straits right now. While simulating a Tesla Turbine (9 disks) what should be the equation of state. Should I consider constant density, real gas or ideal gas? The inlet velocity is 230m/s.

Someone please help me out.

Regards
Kausik

If you can't answer this question you probably shouldn't be starting a simulation yet. In the interest of saving your own time it's probably a good idea to review some fluid mechanics.

Think: at what point would an equation of state matter? What do you need to know about the fluid physics to consider something constant density (i.e. incompressible) or non-constant density (i.e. compressible)?

Ok. Since it is nearly going to reach sonic level its going to be compressible.
