)gamma
),
and any one of the Fanno flow types. You select the Fanno flow type
with mtype
.
This function uses Fanno variables given by the following. F
is
the Fanno parameter given by F = f*L/D. f
is
the friction coefficient. L
is the length
of constant area duct required to achieve sonic flow. D
is
the hydraulic diameter of the duct.
This function assumes that variables vary in one dimension only. It also assumes that the main mechanism for the change of flow variables is the change of crosssectional area of the flow stream tubes.
If the temperature experiences large fluctuations, the perfect gas assumption might be invalid. If the stagnation temperature is above 1500 K, do not assume constant specific heats. In this case, the medium ceases to be a calorically perfect gas. Consider it a thermally perfect gas. See 2 for thermally perfect gas correction factors. If the temperature is so high that molecules dissociate and ionize (static temperature 5000 K for air), you cannot assume a perfect gas.

Array of  

Array of real numerical values for one Fanno flow. This argument can be one of the following:
 

A string that defines the input mode for the type of Fanno flow
in

All outputs are the same size as the array inputs. If there are no array inputs, all outputs are scalars.

Array of Mach numbers. 

Array of temperature ratios. The temperature ratio is the local static temperature over the reference static temperature for sonic flow. 

Array of pressure ratios. The pressure ratio is the local static pressure over the reference static pressure for sonic flow. 

Array of density ratio. The density ratio is the local density over the reference density for sonic flow. 

Array of velocity ratios. The velocity ratio is the local velocity over the reference velocity for sonic flow. 

Array of stagnation (total) pressure ratio. The total pressure ratio is the local total pressure over the reference total pressure for sonic flow. 

Array of Fanno parameters. The Fanno parameter is F = f*L/D.
