Finite element Euler computations in three dimensions. (English) Zbl 0665.76073
An explicit finite element solution procedure for the three dimensional Euler equations is presented. The solution domain is automatically meshed using a tetrahedral mesh generator which is an extension of our previous two dimensional work [e.g.: the first author, M. Vahdati and the last two authors, J. Comput. Phys. 72, 449-466 (1987; Zbl 0631.76085)]. Several examples are included to illustrate the performance of the generator and solver. An adaptive mesh regeneration procedure is used for the first time in three dimensions.
