Computational Modeling of Turbulent Flows


The article presents an improved numerical method developed for calculating turbulent flows basing on the algorithm SIMPLE, Rhie–Chow interpolation on non-staggered grids, and monotonic second and third order accurate TDV schemes. The use of high-order difference schemes for calculation of viscous flows enables achievement of significantly better resolution of the algorithm on coarse grids, which decisively affects the efficiency of two-dimensional and especially three-dimensional calculations.
