Abstract:

The goal of this research is the development of adaptive computational methods to numerically simulate fluid flows around complex configurations in an automatic fashion. Grid generation continues to be a huge impediment for computer simulations of realistic fluid flows. This is true for both body-fitted structured grid solvers and unstructured grid approaches. We are developing a Cartesian grid representation of the geometry, where the object is simply cut out of the Cartesian grid. We are also investigating the suitability of adaptive methods on parallel computers. Adaptive mesh refinement, Compressible fluid flows, Cartesian meshes.
