Computation of threedimensional timedependent flow using the Euler equations
Abstract
The development of a computer program to solve the threedimensional, unsteady Euler equations is described. A finite volume method in Cartesian coordinates is used with the MacCormack predictorcorrector algorithm. The grid imposed on the computational domain is topologically equivalent to a regular grid on a cube. The resulting control volumes are hexahedrones with quadrilateral faces. Solutions are presented to show the accuracy of the computer program and to demonstrate the degree of flexibility with respect to complex model geometry.
