A high-fidelity solver for turbulent compressible flows on unstructured meshes

  title={A high-fidelity solver for turbulent compressible flows on unstructured meshes},
  author={Davide Modesti and Sergio Pirozzoli},
  journal={arXiv: Fluid Dynamics},
We develop a high-fidelity numerical solver for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations, with the main aim of highlighting the predictive capabilities of low-diffusive numerics for flows in complex geometries. The space discretization of the convective terms in the Navier-Stokes equations relies on a robust energy-preserving numerical flux, and numerical diffusion inherited from the AUSM scheme is added limited to the vicinity of shock waves, or wherever spurious numerical oscillations are…
