Abstract

In this paper the isothermal flow of perfect gases is discussed following the gas dynamic approach of applying the continuity, momentum and energy equations. Flow functions for isothermal, reversible, one‐dimen‐sional flow are derived and these are represented graphically. Isothermal flow in convergent‐divergent nozzles is analysed and the variation of the derived flow functions is depicted.
