Inviscid Compressible Flow

Numerical solution of inviscid incompressible flow was discussed in the previous chapter. The present chapter is devoted to numerical study of inviscid compressible flow. It may be noted that linearized subsonic and supersonic flows, may be treated quite economically by the panel methods, based on the assumptions of small perturbation, discussed in the previous chapter. Moreover, they assume either low speed subcritical flow or else purely supersonic flow. It is pointed out further, that the linearized models, are quite restrictive and yield only approximate results. Their usefulness is to be seen in obtaining quick first results. In view of this, our main interest in the present chapter, is high speed flow and ...
