Default curvilinear coordinates
Posts: n/a
Hi everybody! I have written a code for simulating 3D, turbulent, unsteady, compressible flow in a cartesian grid and what I am trying to do now is to use cyrvilinear coordinates. Can you suggest me any good article-book for implementing the above? I would like to see also how the discretisation is made with detail. Thank you

Good luck

For a good overview of curvilinear coordinates I have found the following books quite readable:

Computational Fluid Dynamics for Engineers Klaus A. Hoffmann and Steve T. Chiang EES, Austin, Texas, USA, 1989 Vol.1 ISBN 0-9623731-7-6 Vol.2 ISBN 0-9623731-8-4

Thank you for your response. I have read the book of Anderson, but it doesn't describe the discretisation of the governing equations after the use og the generalized coordinates. This is what I am actually searching for.
