Application ID: 43591
The compressible Euler equations are implemented in the Wave Form PDE interface with nodal discontinuous Lagrange shape functions to compute the flow in a shock tube. The purpose of this application is to simulate the flow in the tube and estimate the distributions of pressure, density, velocity, temperature, speed of sound, Mach number, and mass flow along the tube, as well as the position of the waves at any given time.
This application example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
