Abstract : The hydraulic analogy to the isentropic flow of a compressible fluid has long been recognized. This study was undertaken to find some means, if possible, of extending the analogy so as to simulate the addition of heat in compressible fluid flow. It was shown that while the analogy does not hold for this phenomenon or for any non-isentropic process, a method does exist by which the isentropic addition of energy may be simulated. (Author)
