Conference paper


Euler computation results for the test case 7.1.1 from a newly developed multidomain solver (FLU3M) based on an upwind/MUSCL numerical scheme are presented. The strong influence of the grid density for an accurate prediction of the flowfield specially in the vortex region is examined through three grid refinements.
