Calculation of the incompressible Navier-stokes equations in generalized nonorthogonal body fitted coordinate system Gang, Dong-Jin; Bae, Sang-Su;
In this paper, a numerical procedure for the calculation of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in a generalized nonorthogonal body fitted coordinate system is proposed and is validated through three test problems. Present numerical procedure derives the pressure equation by using the pressure substitution method on the regular grid system, and discretized momentum equations are based on the covariant velocity components. Cavity flow, backward facing step flow, and two dimensional channel flow with a sinusoidal wavy wall are chosen as three test problems. Numerical solutions obtained by present procedure shows a good agreement with previous numerical and/or experimental results. Convergence rate is also satisfactory.
