Abstract

Self-similar solutions for the nonadiabatic expansion of a gas in planar, cylindrical, and spherical geometry due to heating of a fairly general form are presented. The solution for an isothermal expansion which has previously been studied in the literature is recovered as a special case. Some additional examples of physical interest which reveal the variety of possible gas profiles resulting from the general solution are discussed.
