Gas Dynamics

This course emphasizes application of the conservation equations of mass, momentum and energy to solve problems in one-dimensional and two-dimensional compressible flow including one-dimensional isentropic flow, flow with area change, adiabatic flow with friction, normal shock waves and flow with heat addition. The method of characteristics is introduced to solve two-dimensional compressible flow problems. Numerical techniques are presented and a numerical analysis project is completed on one-dimensional, unsteady flow.
