### BurgersTX

This code solves a very general version of the Burgers equation in the
time domain using an algorithm developed at The University of Texas at
Austin.
- Read me file
- BurgersTX.f Fortran
source code
- RelaxFig1 Input file to generate
Fig 1 from the JASA paper by Cleveland et al. The original figure is
available in gif format Figure 1.
- S2F10_4096 The file with the
initial pressure waveform for the above input file. The file describes
a step-function with a total number of samples of 4096 and with 10
points in the step.
- RelaxFig2 Input file to generate
Fig 2 from the JASA paper by Cleveland et al. The original figure is
available in gif format Figure 2.
- Nwave Input file which shows the
evolution of an N-wave.
- N10_4096 The data file with the
initial N-wave for the above input file. The file has 4096 points and
there are 10 points each in the head and tail shocks.

A variant of this code (THOR) was used to model sonic boom propagation
in the atmosphere:
