"Integrated Fluid Simulation"


Although the finite difference method (FDM) has enjoyed much popularity and has been extensively used for solving flow problems due to its flexibility, pursuit of flexibility generally tends to sacrifice calculation accuracy and efficiency. Indeed, the FDM suffers from numerical dispersion and grid orientation effects.


There is no single numerical scheme that can properly handle a variety of flow problems. It is important to select the scheme suitable for the object scale, form, and property. Furthermore, it is important to study flow behavior from various aspects by use of different schemes in an interconnected manner.


From such a viewpoint, the integrated simulation technology, including CVBEM, BEM, LBM, and CIP, as well as FDM, is studied for further understanding of fluid behavior.
