## Equations for Steady 1D Isentropic Flow

The equations used to describe steady 1D isentropic flow are derived from conservation of mass, momentum, and energy, as well as an equation of state (typically the ideal gas law). … Continue Reading Equations for Steady 1D Isentropic Flow

## Definition of the Speed of Sound

Deriving the speed of sound is a main component of any undergraduate textbook in gas dynamics and is very important to understanding more complicated concepts! Here, I will give an honest … Continue Reading Definition of the Speed of Sound

## Oblique Shockwaves

In this post I go over the theory of oblique shocks by building on our understand of normal shockwaves! I will give a short overview of the theory and strategy … Continue Reading Oblique Shockwaves

## Compressible Aerodynamics Calculator – Matlab

Here I have written a Matlab App for calculating compressible aerodynamics using the basic gas dynamics equations. The calculations available are: Isentropic Flow (including Prandtl-Meyer flow) Normal Shocks (See article) … Continue Reading Compressible Aerodynamics Calculator – Matlab

## Stationary Normal Shock Waves

Shock-waves are a common topic covered in undergraduate thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and gas dynamics courses. Because shock-waves are awesome, I figured I would do one of my first posts on … Continue Reading Stationary Normal Shock Waves
