Review of Eulerian Computation for 1-D Inviscid Flow

  • Wai-How Hui
  • Kun Xu


Let σ be a stationary surface of discontinuity and n be a unit normal of σ (Figure 3.1). We take a rectangular volume Ω for which σ cuts across Ω as shown in the figure. Let S + denote the surface of Ω which lies in the positive side of σ, S that lies in the negative side, and S l denote the lateral surfaces of Ω.
