Entropy Balance for the One-Dimensional Hyperbolic Quasi-Gasdynamic System of Equations
Entropy balance in the one-dimensional hyperbolic quasi-gasdynamic (HQGD) system of equations is analyzed. In regular flow regimes, it is shown that the behavior of entropy in the HQGD system is determined by terms involving the natural viscosity and thermal conductivity coefficients. The total entropy production differs from the Navier–Stokes equations for viscous compressible heat-conducting gases by the second order terms with respect to a relaxation parameter. Additionally, a similar analysis of energy balance is performed for the simpler case of the barotropic HQGD system, which is of interest for some applications.
