Application of generalized differential quadrature to solve two- dimensional incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. (English) Zbl 0762.76085

Summary: A global method of generalized differential quadrature is applied to solve the two-dimensional incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in the vorticity-stream-function formulation. Numerical results for the flow past a circular cylinder were obtained using just a few grid points. A good agreement is found with the experimental data.
