FAVOR method starts from what time?
I am starting learning flow-3d by the tech notes and flow-3d official webpages. It is claimed that FAVOR can avoid "stair-step" boundaries that alter flow and heat-transfer properties. But in tech-note fsi-85-tn2, it is said that because a cartesian mesh was used, the cylindrical baffle is approximated by a stepped boundary. So I guess the FAVOR method is introduced into flow-3d after 1985, the published year of fsi-85-tn2. Is that true? Does somebody know when the FAVOR method is developed in flow-3d architecture?
