Gasdynamic Calculator

Calculation of flow parameters along a nozzle, across an oblique shock and for a Prandtl-Meyer corner flow

This interactive program determines the flow parameters along a convergent/divergent nozzle, across an oblique shock generated by a wedge, and along a Prandtl-Meyer corner flow. It is based on the assumption of a thermal and caloric perfect gas. The flow conditions can be changed online by sliding buttons.
