This function solves Prandtl Meyer expansion using the relations given in "Modern Compressible Flow With Historical Prespective-John D. Anderson Jr"
  • It is only accurate in the range for mach number M=[1,7] because I used an approximate relation in one of the cases
  • You can solve for different cases depending on the given data for your problem, the values assigned for the flags determine the case you want to solve for.
  • variables names ending with 3 refer to the stream before expansion.
  • variables names ending with 4 refer to the stream after expansion.
  • I used 3 and 4 for consistency with an oblique shock function I created before this.
