Real Gas Flows with High Velocities

Vladimir V. Lunev
June 16, 2017

Despite generations of change and recent, rapid developments in gas dynamics and hypersonic theory, relevant literature has yet to catch up, so those in the field are generally forced to rely on dated monographs to make educated decisions that reflect present-day science. Written by preeminent...

A Shock-Fitting Primer

Manuel D. Salas
June 14, 2017

A defining feature of nonlinear hyperbolic equations is the occurrence of shock waves. While the popular shock-capturing methods are easy to implement, shock-fitting techniques provide the most accurate results. A Shock-Fitting Primer presents the proper numerical treatment of shock waves and other...

Numerical Techniques for Direct and Large-Eddy Simulations

Xi Jiang, Choi-Hong Lai
June 14, 2017

Compared to the traditional modeling of computational fluid dynamics, direct numerical simulation (DNS) and large-eddy simulation (LES) provide a very detailed solution of the flow field by offering enhanced capability in predicting the unsteady features of the flow field. In many cases, DNS can...
