An upwind kinetic flux vector splitting method on general mesh topologies. (English) Zbl 0791.76068
Summary: An upwind flux vector splitting algorithm which utilizes the moments of the Boltzmann equation to derive the Euler equations for inviscid compressible flow has been used with a variety of grid types. Although the upwind approach offers the potential for accurate flow simulations, it is necessary to ensure that such procedures can be utilized on realistic grids. In this paper, an upwind algorithm is used with structured multiblock grids, unstructured grids of triangles and hybrid structured/unstructured grids to solve realistic compressible flow problems in two dimensions.
