Simplified solution algorithms for fluid flow problems

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A simplified algorithm is described for the numerical solution of the Navier--Stokes equations. Because of its simple construction, the algorithm serves as a good introduction to numerical fluid dynamics as well as a basis for developing many kinds of new solution methods. To illustrate the flexibility of this algorithm, simple modifications are described for introducing internal obstacles, an accelerated steady-state solution method, a potential flow option, and a method of increasing numerical accuracy. 4 figures.
