Selected phenomena associated with fluid compressibility, and the methods which are used to obtain quantitative descriptions of compressible flows, are discussed in this chapter. For simplicity, the viscous effect is neglected, while the compressible effect, which is a measure of the inertial effect, is taken into account due to its significant influence in high-speed flows. Hence, this chapter is devoted to the discussions on compressible inviscid flows.
