Equilibrium Shock Tunnel Conditions, with Nozzle
This program can be used to estimate flow conditions for shock-processed flows typical of high-performance shock-tunnels and expansion tubes.
The program can do a number of calculations from the command line:
- flow in a reflected shock tube with or without a nozzle
- pitot pressure from free-stream flow condition
- stagnation (total) condition from free-stream condition
- code surface condition from free-stream condition
estcn is a Python3 program built upon the core gas models and the loadable library
that is wrapped around those models.
To install the estcn program and the loadable library,
move to the
gas source directory and use the make utility.
cd dgd/src/gas make install
This will also install files associated with the gas models. Note that you should have your Linux environment set up as described on the Quick Start Guide.
