Circulation in inviscid gas flows with shocks

By D. J. Allwright and K. Kaouri


In this note, we show that the circulation $\Gamma=\int_C\mathbf{u}\cdot\mathbf{dx}$ around a closed material curve $C(t)$ in an inviscid gas flow develops according to the equation $\frac{d\Gamma}{dt}=\int_CT\,dS$, even when the curve may cross shocks, with the entropy jumps at the shocks excluded from the right-hand side
