Numerical solutions of the Euler equations with separation by a finite element method
A finite element least squares method is applied to the steady Euler equations in order to capture separated flows around a cylinder. This is achieved without using artificial viscosity but only by giving a “Kutta condition” at the separation point. The sensitivity of the solution to this condition and mesh size is discussed in this paper.
