Numerical Simulation of a Spinning Projectile Using Parallel and Vectorized Unstructured Flow Solver

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computational Science and Engineering book series (LNCSE,volume 67)

Abstract

The finite volume method (FVM) is the most widely used numerical method by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) researchers to solve the compressible Navier-Stokes equations. A successful FVM solver should be accurate, efficient and robust. High-order spatial discretization must be used for accuracy. Implicit time integration is usually adopted to obtain better efficiency, especially for high Reynolds number flows. For large-scale applications, the solver should be parallelized and even vectorized to be able to run on parallel and vector computer platforms.
