Numerical Simulation of Viscous Perfect Gas Dynamics
Fourteen runs were made, six of them using air in the driver section for perfect gas simulation and eight of them using helium in the driver section for real gas simulation.
Well, that's where the perfect gas law comes in, but we agreed not to use technical terminology.
