 April 3, 2002, 08:15 Finite Volume Example #1 Matt Kellerman Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am a relative newcomer to the field of CFD and have been following "An introduction to Computational fluid dynamics - The finite volume method" by Versteeg and Malalasekara. What I am interested in doing, is producing some code which incorporates the following: - Overview: Solves for Pressure and velocity using SIMPLE algorithm using a staggered grid in two dimensions. - Boundary Conditions: Known velocity at inlet and constant pressure outlet. - Differencing Scheme: Hybrid differencing - Flow type: laminar, Non-Compressible. I have several questions before I know enough to be able to use the finite volume method to build the above model - Mainly around the implementation of boundary conditions, Source terms and also solving for pressure correction. What would be ideal is if anyone could point me in the direction of a worked example similar to the above scenario that I could follow which would most likely answer all of my questions. If not, I'll post some specific questions that I have. I only have limited access to University library resources (through a friend), so a URL, or feel free to e-mail me anything that you think may be of use to me. Many thanks for your time and help, Matt Kellerman.

Ferziger, et al and also you can get the sample code ( such as using FVM and SIMPLE scheme to solve 2D flow) from ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/technik/peric/
