Computational analysis of dense gas shock tube flow. (English) Zbl 0866.76052
Summary: Nonclassical phenomena associated with the classical dynamics of real gases in a conventional shock tube are studied. A TVD predictor-corrector (TVD-MacCormack) scheme with reflective endwall boundary conditions is used for the one-dimensional Euler equations to simulate the evolution of the wave field of a van der Waals gas. Depending upon the initial conditions of the gas, wave fields are produced that contain nonclassical phenomena such as expansion shocks, composite waves, splitting shocks, etc. In addition, the interactions of waves reflected from the endwalls produce both classical and nonclassical phenomena. Wave field evolution is depicted using plots of the flow variables at specific times and with \(x-t\) diagrams.
