Weakly Nonlinear Waves in Nonideal Fluids
We study the propagation of weakly nonlinear waves in nonideal fluids, which exhibit mixed nonlinearity. A method of multiple scales is used to obtain a transport equation from the Navier–Stokes equations, supplemented by the equation of state for a van der Waals fluid. Effects of van der Waals parameters on the wave evolution, governed by the transport equation, are investigated.
