Numerical simulation of three dimensional unsteady flow by multiprocessor solving of the NavierStokes equations
Abstract
Results obtained in numerical and experimental studies of the unsteady flows of an incompressible viscous fluid around an infinite span circular cylinder or profile (2D problem) and around finite span circular cylinder between two walls (3D problem) are presented. The Cray2 and VP200 vector computers were used for numerical simulation, the LIMSI software for image processing and a fluid mechanics laboratory for visualization experiments. The algorithm is adapted to external and internal flows and uses the velocityvortex vector.
