  1. 1. Stable High-Order Finite Difference Methods for Aerodynamics

    Author : Magnus Svärd; Jan Nordström; Thomas Hagstrom; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; finite difference methods; high-order accuracy; summation-by-parts; stability; energy estimates; finite volume methods; Numerical analysis; Numerisk analys; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap; Numerical Analysis; Numerisk analys;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the numerical solution of time-dependent partial differential equations (PDE) is studied. In particular high-order finite difference methods on Summation-by-parts (SBP) form are analysed and applied to model problems as well as the PDEs governing aerodynamics. READ MORE

    Abstract : Partial differential equations (PDEs) are used to model various phenomena in nature and society, ranging from the motion of fluids and electromagnetic waves to the stock market and traffic jams. There are many methods for numerically approximating solutions to PDEs. READ MORE

  5. 5. A new high-order method for direct numerical simulations of turbulent wall-bounded flows

    Author : Peter Lenaers; Arne Johansson; Hans Kuerten; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Incompressible wall-bounded flows; direct numerical simulations; high-order; compact finite differences; collocated grid; influence matrix method;

    Abstract : A new method to perform direct numerical simulations of wall-bounded flows has been developed and implemented. The method uses high-order compact finite differences in wall-normal (for channel flow) or radial direction (for pipe flow) on a collocated grid, which gives high-accuracy results without the effectfof filtering caused by frequent interpolation as required on a staggered grid.
