Existence of multidimensional non-isothermal phase transitions in a steady van der Waals flow

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • This paper is concerned with the existence of multi-dimensional non-isothermal subsonic phase transitions in a steady supersonic flow with the van der Waals type state function. Due to the subsonic property, the Lax entropy inequality [15] is no longer valid for subsonic phase transitions. Hence, physical admissible planar waves are chosen by the viscosity capillarity criterion [24]. Based on the uniform stability result in [28], we perform the iteration scheme [20] and establish the existence.
