A locally implicit finite element analysis algorithm for 3D compressible flows
Abstract
The paper outlines the research results on the development of a finiteelement analysis procedure for threedimensional compressible viscous flows. Some new algorithmic features of the computational model, such as a locally implicit solution scheme which avoids the necessity of computation and assembly of global matrices. The new algorithm makes it applicable to largescale threedimensional flow problems of practical interest, for example, the analysis of flows in Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME).
