Certain generalizations in compressible flow characteristics are first reviewed including specific solutions to flow with losses in the absence of heat transfer (i.e., Fanno flow), in terms of an empirical loss coefficient, Kf . The analysis is then extended to specific solutions to flow with heat transfer, with and without losses (i.e., isothermal and Rayleigh flows), in terms of an empirical heat transfer coefficient, Kq . All solutions are mapped on generalized plots which, in addition to their utility, exhibit a certain beauty of symmetry and continuity.
