  • We study the vanishing pressure limits of Riemann solutions to the Chaplygin gas equations with a source term. The phenomena of concentration and cavitation to Chaplygin gas equations with a friction term are identified and analyzed as the pressure vanishes. Due to the influence of source term, the Riemann solutions are no longer self-similar. When the pressure vanishes, the Riemann solutions to the inhomogeneous Chaplygin gas equations converge to the Riemann solutions to the pressureless gas dynamics model with a friction term.
