Some remarks on the numerical solution of tricomitype equations
Abstract
The present investigation is concerned with some aspects regarding the numerical solution of the Tricomi equation and the inverted Tricomi equation, giving particular attention to periodic problems. One problem is related to a model for the deflection of a floppy disk considered as a rotating membrane, while the other involves the study of a model for the transonic de Laval nozzle. A finite difference solution of the model nozzle problem is discussed, taking into account a comparison of the calculated model nozzle flow with the exact solution. A description of the finite difference solution for the floppy disk model is also provided.
