Abstract

The incompressible Navier-Stokes equations with heat transfer are solved by an implicit pressure-correction method on unstructured Cartesian meshes. An immersed boundary method is also implemented to treat arbitrary solid bodies in the flow field. The domain occupied by the immersed bodies is viewed as being occupied by the same fluid as outside, with a prescribed velocity and temperature field. With this view, the pressure inside the immersed bodies satisfies the same pressure Poisson equation as outside. Multigrid methods are developed to solve the difference equations for pressure, velocity, and temperature field. Various forced-convection and natural-convection test problems are computed to validate the present methodology.
