Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A parallel numerical method solves the solutions of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations is developed. The method uses a third-order upwind finite volume scheme to discretize the convective terms and second-order finite volume method to discretize the viscous terms. For the unsteady solutions, the second-order Crank-Nicolson method is used for the time integration. To analyze the convergent rate of the method, an explicit Range-Kutta and implicit DDADI method are introduced and compared in the parallel computations. The multizone technique and the related boundary conditions are investigated in the parallel computations.
