An implicit, Navier-Stokes solution algorithm is presented for the computation of turbulent flow on unstructuredgrids. The inviscid fluxes are computed using an upwind algorithm and the solution is advanced in time using a backward-Eulertime-steppingscheme. At each time step, the linear system of equations is approximately solved with a point-implicit relaxation scheme. This methodology provides a viable and robust algorithm for computing turbulent flows on unstructured meshes. Resultsare shown… CONTINUE READING
