Gas dynamics

The subject of this lecture concerns the two areas compressible subsonic flow and supersonic flows with their typical phenomena like shocks and expansion waves.

Short time measurement techniques

The lecture includes some flow visualization techniques as well as quantitative measuring methods.

Shock waves I, II

The phenomena of shock waves propagating in gases will be described.

Gas dynamics of real gases I, II

It will be shown which phenomena occur in gases and gas flows if the conditions are far outside of the validity range of ideal gases.
