Abstract
It was found that at low Mach numbers (less than the critical Mach number), all gas models are essentially reduced to the classical Prandtl-Glauert model and result in similar solutions for the flow fields irrespective of free-stream properties. For transonic flows at low temperatures and pressures, the solutions of the gas models are close to each other. However, for transonic flows at high temperatures and pressures, the difference between the solutions produced by various models became more pronounced, suggesting a significant sensitivity of transonic flows of real gases to their thermodynamic modeling.
