Solution of Euler equations using finite element method and the kinetic decomposition of the flows: Study of the selfadaptation of the grid and of the calculation field
Abstract
The method of kinetic decomposition of flows was applied in three dimensional flow analysis. A Galerkin type approximation is used for solving Euler equations. In order to improve performances, a strategy for the self adaptation of the grids and/or the calculation field is developed. Entropy concepts and the destructuring of the finite elements method (space/time) are used.
