Kroll, Norbert (ed.) et al., MEGAFLOW – numerical flow simulation for aircraft design. Results of the second phase of the German CFD initiative MEGAFLOW, presented during its closing symposium at DLR, Braunschweig, Germany, December 10–11, 2002. Berlin: Springer (ISBN 3-540-24383-6/hbk). Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics and Multidisciplinary Design (NNFM) 89, 81-92 (2005).
Summary: A brief introduction is given which first describes the history of frame in which the TAU code was developed before explaining the main advantages which were the drivers for the selection of the approach. In the following an algorithmic overview describes shortly the code functionality before a section about the code design gives some more insight about the implementation and its scripting capability.
