Evolution of the compression ratio r and of the amount of kinetic energy radiated away, X, as a function of the upstream Mach number for a barotropic material, with density ratios r1 = 0.1 (black), 1 (red), and 10 (blue). The dotted lines represent the evolution for a supercritical shock with an optically thin upstream material (cf. Fig. 2).
