Abstract

The problem that will be considered here will be the flow in a cylinder filled with a homogeneous ideal gas, bounded on one end by a vacuum and/or a rigid wall with the motion initiated by a piston on the other end. First, the basic Lagrangian differential equations will be derived along with other necessary thermodynamical relations. A scheme of difference equations will be presented and the viscosity term discussed as well as a method for insuring stability of the difference equations during the calculations
