Project Description

Radically New, Hyperbolic Navier-Stokes Solver for Complex Simulations, Year 2

Conventional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) schemes suffer from the inability to predict accurate and smooth solution gradients for fully tetrahedral unstructured elements (on the boundaries and/or within the computational domain). Adjoint error estimation, turbulence modeling and analysis, transition prediction, vorticity prediction, and surface heat flux estimation, to name a few, rely on accurate and smooth prediction of gradients. A successful outcome of this project will make a far-reaching impact on numerical methods for the Navier-Stokes equations through the entire flight regime, and dramatically changes the way flow simulations are performed today.
