Abstract

The Hopf-Cole transformation is used to obtain a steady solution of the forced Burgers equation when the driving force is a sinusoid. A reduced linear equation of damped Mathieu type is solved numerically by a Fourier expansion method. It is found that steady solutions exist for arbitrary values of the viscosity and the forcing. Whether the waveform is smooth or a shock appears depends on the relative magnitudes of the viscosity and the forcing. Comparisons are made with analytical solutions in some limiting cases and also with matched solutions.
