Supersonic axisymmetric conical flow solutions for different ratios of specific heats
Abstract
The aim of this study is to summarize the salient behavioural characteristics of calorically perfect conical supersonic flows for different values of the ratio of specific heats. Although the computation of the conical flow is relatively straightforward, some effort is required to assemble a useful set of information for a variety of values of gamma. Over the range of ratio of specific heats, 1.0(+) less than gamma less than 1.67, the characteristics demonstrate considerable variations.
