A theoretical model for converging cylindrical and spherical shock waves in non-ideal gas characterized by condensed matter equation of state (EOS) of Mie-Gruneisen type is investigated. The governing equations considered are non-linear system of one- dimensional partial differential equations in Eulerian hydrodynamics. We analyze the system for possible analytical and numerical solutions. The analytical solution for the system is attempted using Lie group of point transformations. The arbitrary constants that appear in the expressions of generators of the Lie group transformations provide possibility of cases with and without artificial viscosity. The symmetry variables which lead the governing system of non-linear partial differential equations to a reduced system of ordinary differential equations are determined using symmetry generators. Numerical calculations have been performed to obtain the similarity exponent and the profiles of the flow variables using the forward difference and Lax-Friedrichs schemes. The effect of artificial viscosity on the flow variables, the process of stability and consistency along with the Courant- Friedrichs Lewy condition is investigated. The numerical solution by Lax-Friedrichs scheme found to be highly suitable for the system since the effect of flow variables, velocity and pressure in the presence of artificial viscosity parameter is negligible which agrees with the analytical solution obtained by Lie symmetry method

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
