Singular solutions to the Riemann problem for the pressureless Euler equations with discontinuous source term

12 Dec 2017  ·  Zhang Qingling ·

In this paper, the Riemann problem for the pressureless Euler equations with a discontinuous source term is considered. The delta shock wave solution is obtained by combining the generalized Rankine-Hugoniot conditions together with the method of characteristics for different situations, which reflects the impact of the source term on the delta shock front... Moreover, during the construction process of the Riemann solution, some interesting phenomena are also observed, such as the disappearance of the delta shock wave and the occurrence of the vacuum state, etc. read more
