A regularized stiffened-gas equation of state
Keywords:Stiffened-gas, equation of state, computational fluid dynamics, slightly compressible fluid
Abstract:
      An alternative to the stiffened-gas equation of state is proposed that corrects for unphysical behavior, namely the returning of negative pressure values for densities lower than the reference density. The question of generalizing a given isentropic equation of state is first addressed. Then, a regularized stiffened-gas equation of state is derived, which is the main goal of this work. Finally, the use of the new equation of state is briefly illustrated for a classical computational fluid dynamics benchmark concerning the evaluation of liquid impact on a wall.
