Abstract

A simple, stable, and accurate ghost cell method is developed to solve the incompressible flows over immersed bodies with heat transfer. A two-point stencil is used to build the flow reconstruction models for both Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions on the immersed surface. Tests show that the current scheme is second-order-accurate in all error norms for both types of boundary condition, with the only exception that under Neumann condition the order of the maximum norm of temperature error is 1.44. Various forced- and natural-convection problems for cylinders immersed in open field or in a cavity are computed and compared with published data.
