Compressible flow
In a nutshell, the term compressible flow refers to the fluids of
which there can be found significant variation of density in the flow
under consideration.
Compressibility is strongly related to the speed of the flow itself and
the thermodynamics of the fluid. A good grasp of thermodynamics
is imperative for the study of compressible flow.
For low-speed flow, the kinetic energy is often much smaller than
the heat content of the fluid, such that temperature remains more or
less constant.
On the other hand, the magnitude of the kinetic energy in a
high-speed flow can be very large, able to cause a large variation in
the temperature.
Some important phenomena strongly associated with compressibility
are the flow discontinuity and choking of the flow.

Compressible flow
To illustrate, consider a car at sea-level, 1 atm and 15 ◦ C, going at a
speed of 90 km/h. The density is 1.225 kg/m3 . At a stagnation
point, the density there is found to be 1.228 kg/m3 , a mere 0.27 %
difference. The temperature rises by 0.311 ◦ C and the pressure
changes by 0.38 %. Here, the incompressible assumption can be
applied.
Now, consider a typical air flow around a cruising jetliner at 10 km
altitude. The speed is now 810 km/h, while the ambient conditions
are 0.413 kg/m3 , 0.261 atm and −50 ◦ C. At the stagnation point the
temperature rises by over 25 ◦ C, while density and pressure changes
by more than 30 % and 45 %, respectively. It is clear that
compressibility must now be taken into account.

Figure 1: Breaking the sound
barrier. . . ?
An extreme example of
compressible flow in action is the
re-entry flow. Another is shown
here on the left as a jet fighter
seemingly punches through the
“sound barrier”. However, more
daily mundane applications can
also be found in flows through jet
engines, or around a transport
aircraft.
