Finite Volume Approach For Unstructured grid
I am a beginer in CFD with some elementary knowledge. Please guide me on above topic specially for viscous flows . Please provide me some information about the algorithm, derivative estimation and resources like books or some particular journal etc. from where I could get a detailed information. You can email me at :

Re: Finite Volume Approach For Unstructured grid

I've given a list of papers which will give you most of the information you are looking for. I've mentioned only a few papers for solving Euler and/or Navier-Stokes equations using finite-volume method on unstructured grids. You can find more papers from the reference list at the end of each paper.

I'm using upwind schemes to compute inviscid and viscous flows on unstructured grids.

GOOD LUCK. Jawahar
