About shock tube model

Please login with a confirmed email address before reporting spam

Hi there,

I have going through the shock tube model: www.comsol.com/showroom/gallery/100/ but I found something strange: should not the pressure wave reach the boundaries (3m tube) in the order of milisenconds? In the results it shows that even after 1 second the wave have not arrive... I am missing something???

Thanks!

You are right. I never thought about that! Probably y is not the real time, but some dimensionless number related to time. Support should helb you with that.

Hi!!!
I've been going through that model also and I guess they worked with non-dimensional NS equations, although the dimensions of the geometry are marked as lenght units.
Another curiosity is that the model doesn't seem to handel with greater amplitudes on the step function. In real experiments I believe that the driver zone reaches pressures higher than twice the one of the driven zone (which usually is kept at atmosferic pressure).
Have you tried to contact the Comsol's support??

If you have any information about this model that you could share I would be very appreciated.

Hi!!!

I tryed to use the model for other gammas (1.1), but I also have divergence problems.

I asked the support for the case of gamma 1.4 with a pressure ratio of 20/1 and they did it for me.
So I think just ask and they will solve it for you.

Bye,
Fabio

Hi!!

Thanks for the reply. Is to good to know that one can get result for such pressure ratios. I just wonder what were the changes they've made to the model. I've tried many things and nothing worked except for the use of a bigger domain. Could you send me the model file??

Thanks.

Hi!

Have you solved the model with a higher pressure ratio. I met the same problem during my study, which troubled me for several weeks. could you give me some advice?

Thank you very much for the help!

As I suggested, ask the support, they did it for me and I think they will do it for you!
