Application of the control-volume method for the solution of problems in gas and fluid mechanics on unstructured grids



неструктурированная сетка, уравнения Навье-Стокса, метод контрольного объема, течение около профиля, газовая динамика


The control-volume method for solving problems in gas and fluid mechanics on unstructured grids is developed. The peculiarities of discretization for inviscid and viscous fluxes and for time derivatives in the Navier-Stokes equations are discussed. The potentiality of the approach under consideration is demonstrated by an example of solving some gas dynamic problems (flow around profiles).
