The simultaneous solution along lines of the continuity and momentum equations
Abstract
This paper describes an iteration technqiue for the solution of the set of coupled algebraic equations that represent the mass and momentum conservation equations in an incompressible fluid flow formulation. The proposed method solves for continuity and momentum simultaneously along lines through the calculation domain. The solution domain is entirely swept linebyline in each coordinate direction successively until a converged solution is obtained. The tight coupling that is maintained between the equations results in an economical solution of the governing equations.
