Objectives After successfully engaging with the topics of this course, students will be able to

  • comprehend the derivation of the gas dynamics equation from the basic equations of inviscid, stationary flows,
  • apply Prandtl-Glauert transformation to subsonic compressible flows,
  • apply Ackeret's Theory to supersonic compressible flows,
  • calculate nonliniear effects in supersonic flows (oblique shock waves, expansion fans),
  • calculate one-dimensional wave propogation.

The level of mathematical modeling and analysis of the mentioned topics is comparable to the level of the textbooks: Zierep, Theoretische Gasdynamik, 1976 und Anderson, Modern Compressible Flow, 1990.

  • fundamentals of gas dynamics
  • compressible subsonic flow
  • linear and nonlinear calculation of supersonic flow
  • wave propagation
