# A Limiting “Viscosity” Approach to the Riemann Problem for Materials Exhibiting Change of Phase

Chapter

## Abstract

The one-dimensional isothermal motion of a compressible elastic fluid or solid can be described in Lagrangian coordinates by the coupled system

$${u_{1}} + p{\left( w \right)_{x}} = 0,$$

(0.1)

$${w_{1}} - {u_{x}} = 0.$$
