This paper provides some recent developments of an immersed boundary method for solving flows of industrial interest at arbitrary Mach numbers. The method is based on the solution of the preconditioned compressible Favre-averaged Navier - Stokes equations closed by the k-ω low Reynolds number turbulence model. A flexible local grid refinement technique is implemented on parallel machines using a domain-decomposition approach and an edge-based data structure. Thanks to the efficient grid generation process, based on the ray-tracing technique, and the use of the METIS software, it is possible to obtain the partitioned grids to be assigned to each processor with a minimal effort by the user. This allows one to by-pass the very time consuming generation process of a body-fitted grid.
