 November 11, 2000, 03:09 Incompressible method #1 Andy Guest   Posts: n/a Hi,everybody, I am a beginner in writting a CFD code for unsteady flow,I'm not sure whcih primitive variable algorithm(SIMPLE, MAC,ect.) is better(accurcate,or easy to program) for fullfil my task while using the multigrid method,people who have experence on unsteady flow and MG,please give me some advice. Thank you very much and waiting your reply. andy

It is based on primitive variable formulation. It is based on Explicit scheme and pressure poisson equation approach. Simple method was developed by S.V. Patankar based on Semi-implicit scheme, pressure correction scheme. Simple algorithm is somewhat difficult comparitively to Mac solver. Now a days, people are using simple method. You can download the MAC algorithm from "www.lanl.gov". bye.....

Additionally,my other care is which algorithm can efficient be used with MG,in SIMPLE or SIMPLER,the calculation on each time step are splitted into too much substeps,so it need too much computer resource and programming, I guess. andy

And the best algorithm for unsteady problems is modified SIMPLE. I write the code for fully explisit SIMPLE (it easy to do) and it is the quickest algorithm to calculate (you just have to use rather small time step). Evgueny

I am carrying out unsteady calculations with a fully implicit time discretisation with a SIMPLE. If the time step becomes rather small, I have serious stability problems; I guess this is due to the fact that the "Rhie and Chow" coupling term becomes small (I use co-located variables). So what I am interested in is an explicit method, in particular I thought about MAC. So I am wondering: - How does an "Explicit SIMPLE" work; by now I was sure that you need to use an implicit method with the SIMPLE - How can you guarantee divergence free flow, if you solve the momentum equations explicitely, and not solve the Poisson equation for the pressure EXACTELY (this would be something like MAC) - What is the difference between your Algorithm and MAC? I would be very grateful for some hints. Best regards Romuald
