Numerical solvers

  • A high-order discontinuous Galerkin solver for shallow water equations
  • A hybrid DG-WENO solver for high-speed flow with shocks
  • A high-order spectral difference solver for incompressible Navier-Stokes equations
  • A massively parallel high-order spectral difference solver for solar convection [completed implementation in March 2011!]
  • A massively parallel solver for incompressible Navier-Stokes equations using pressure correction method [in progress]
  • An artificial compressibility method for incompressible Navier-Stokes equations to solve for fluid-structure interaction [in progress]
  • GW-ECAS has been successfully developed! GW-ECAS stands for GW Efficient Computational Aerodynamics Solver. This solver employs high-order correction procedure via reconstruction on 3D unstructured grids with hexa cells for predicting unsteady flow around flapping wing flight. [completed in March 2013!]
