This paper combines a state-of-the-art method for solving the three-dimensional preconditioned Navier–Stokes equations for compressible flows with an immersed boundary approach, to provide a Cartesian-grid method for computing complex flows over a wide range of the Mach number.

Abstract

This paper combines a state-of-the-art method for solving the three-dimensional preconditioned Navier–Stokes equations for compressible flows with an immersed boundary approach, to provide a Cartesian-grid method for computing complex flows over a wide range of the Mach number. Moreover, a flexible local grid refinement technique is employed to achieve high resolution near the immersed body and in other high-flow-gradient regions at a fraction of the cost required by a uniformly fine grid. The method is validated versus well documented steady and unsteady test problems, for a wide range of both Reynolds and Mach numbers. Finally, and most importantly, for the case of the laminar compressible steady flow past an NACA-0012 airfoil, a thorough mesh-refinement study shows that the method is second-order accurate.
