Unformatted text preview: temperature behind the shock, along with the static and stagnation pressure. When computing the stagnation conditions, make the elementary inviscid assumption that all of the energy and momentum is conserved between the conditions behind the shock and the stagnation conditions (thus neglecting heat transfer, etc.) Perform these computations both for equilibrium air, and for a perfect gas with γ = 1 . 4 . Compare the results. Generate a number of plots similar to Anderson Fig. 1.18. Your results should be presented in the form of a brief informal report, describing your methods and results. Include descriptions of the subrou-tines provided, and of the basis for their algorithms. Include listings of the source code in an appendix. How signiﬁcant are the high-enthalpy eﬀects for your trajectory? What is the diﬀerence between the static and stagnation conditions behind the shock? What does this diﬀerence depend on? 1...
