Abstract:

A fully implicit, three-dimensional finite difference simulation of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations has been cast using upwind operators. A non-inertial coordinate system was used to simulate the fluid motion in a processing and spinning cylinder. The continuity equation was modified to include artificial compressibility. The code is capable of time accurate solutions, and it could be used to track time-dependent flows. Keywords Incompressible flow Finite difference methods Navier-Stokes equations Liquid-filled projectile.
