A tensorial approach to computational continuum mechanics using object-oriented techniques
TLDR
The implementation of various types of turbulence modeling in a FOAM computational-fluid-dynamics code is discussed, and calculations performed on a standard test case, that of flow around a square prism, are presented.
Error analysis and estimation for the finite volume method with applications to fluid flows
TLDR
An automatic error-controlled adaptive mesh refinement algorithm is set up in order to automatically produce a solution of pre-determined accuracy, based on a new stabilised and bounded second-order differencing scheme proposed.
OpenFOAM: A C++ Library for Complex Physics Simulations
TLDR
The design of OpenFOAM is described, an object-oriented library for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and structural analysis that provides Finite Volume and Finite Element discretisation in operator form and with polyhedral mesh support, with relevant auxiliary tools and support for massively parallel computing.
High resolution NVD differencing scheme for arbitrarily unstructured meshes
SUMMARY The issue of boundedness in the discretisation of the convection term of transport equations has been widely discussed. A large number of local adjustment practices has been proposed,
OpenFOAM: Open source CFD in research and industry
TLDR
OpenFOAM is described, a C++ object oriented library for Computational Continuum Mechanics (CCM) developed by the author, which allows the user to achieve desired versatility in physical modeling without the sacrifice of complex geometry support and execution efficiency.
Automatic mesh motion for the unstructured finite volume method
TLDR
A vertex-based unstructured mesh motion solver with the polyhedral cell support which calculates the internal point motion based on the prescribed motion of the boundary and a mechanism for minimising mesh distortion through variable stiffness is proposed and tested.
Development of a Generalized Grid Mesh Interface for Turbomachinery simulations with OpenFOAM
TLDR
The choice and implementation of robust and quick algorithms for computing the GGI weighting factors are described and the current state of development of the Generalized Grid Interface for turbomachinery simulations is shown.
Application of the finite volume method and unstructured meshes to linear elasticity
TLDR
The linear stress analysis problem is discretized using the practices usually associated with the FVM, including second-order accurate discretization on control volumes of arbitrary polyhedral shape; segregated solution procedure; and iterative solvers for the systems of linear algebraic equations.
A computational method for sharp interface advection
TLDR
The isoAdvector method was tested on simple two-dimensional and three-dimensional interface advection problems on both structured and unstructured meshes and results are very satisfactory in terms of volume conservation, boundedness, surface sharpness and efficiency.
