Compressible Flow Toolbox
The Compressible Flow Toolbox is a set of algorithms that solve classical compressible fluid flow equations. The novel approach solves the following linear and nonlinear equations to obtain relationships between relevant flow parameters.
The toolbox is implemented in the MATLABŪ programming language and is useful for analysis of 1-D steady flow with constant entropy, with friction, with heat transfer, or with supersonic Mach numbers. The toolbox also contains algorithms to compare and validate the software against existing solutions.
- Isentropic Flow Equations
- Fanno Flow Equations (flow with friction)
- Rayleigh Flow Equations (flow with heat transfer)
- Normal Shock Equations
- Oblique Shock Equations
- Expansion Equations
The Compressible Flow Toolbox is available upon request from NASA's Software Repository through NASA GRC's Technology Transfer and Partnership Office.
