A finite volume method for computation of viscous flow in complex configurations
Abstract
A calculation procedure is presented for computation of steady, recirculating viscous flows in complex configurations. The algorithm has been developed for nonorthogonal coordinate systems using collocated variable arrangement. In order to handle both incompressible and compressible flows, pressure has been selected as a primary dependent variable in preference to density. The pressure field is evaluated using the pressurevelocity correction strategy of the SIMPLE algorithm, suitably modified for collocated variable arrangement. The capability of the threedimensional version of the algorithm has been demonstrated for prediction of two incompressible laminar flow situations with complex geometry.
