Abstract

Classical Navier-Stokes equations are known to be inadequate in describing some flows in both the compressible and incompressible configurations. A ubiquitous simple example of the failure is the description of shock wave structure. A new compressible hydrodynamic set of equations is here developed using a velocity transformation technique similar in nature to Lorentz transformation and termed “re-casted Navier-Stokes equations”. We found that results with the re-casted Navier-Stokes equations fit better the experimental data.
