Abstract

A new zonal approach for computation of compressible viscous flows in cascades has been developed. The two-dimensional, Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations are discretized spatially by a cell-centered finite volume formulation. In order to make the present approach robust, the inviscid fluxes at cell interfaces are evaluated using a highly accurate TVD scheme based on the MUSCL-type approach with the Roe's approximate Riemann solver. The viscous fluxes are determined in a central differencing manner. To simplify the grid generation, a composite zonal grid system is adopted, in which the computational domain is divided into non-overlapping zones, and structured grids are generated independently in each zone. The zonal boundary between two zones is uniquely defined by cell interfaces of one zone, which ensures the uniqueness of the zonal boundary.
