Objectivies and Approach

The workplan of the project includes numerical investigations of viscous flows and an approach to the modification of the Navier-Stokes equations to increase the accuracy of the primary model. The theoretical aspects of the project cover the theoretical foundation of the modified Navier-Stokes equations and analytical and numerical study of 1D, 2D and 3D unsteady problems. The algorithmic aspects of the project comprise the development of the codes for the modified Navier-Stokes equations on a scaleable multiprocessor computer and the study of the efficiency of these codes.

Progress and Results

Work is in progress to provide the second order approximation for velosity distribution near some point that is used in the Tailor expansion to derive the stain rate tensor components. Meanwhile, research is going on regarding the auxiliary heat transfer problem and the use of multiprocessor techniques for the visualisation of the computed results.

Information Dissemination Activities and/or Exploitation

A list of publications and technical reports that describe results obtained within the project may be acquired from the coordinator.
