Description: Note presenting a modification of certain variational methods for the approximate solution of subsonic and transonic flows to compensate for the fact that those methods fail as soon as shock waves occur. By applying a variational principle to the regions of flow behind shock waves and Bateman's original principle to the other regions in the fluid, shock equations can be directly obtained.
