Gas Hammer Validation

Description: 

This short sample problem applies a triangular wave at one end of a closed, air-filled line. The predictions of reflected waves are compared against other analytic solutions specialized for wave-propagation simulations (Method of Characteristics).

The sensitivity of the results to Pipe subdivision and WAVLIM factors (similar to a limit on the Courant number) are explored.
