Re: Artificial Compressiblity Method
Artificial Compressibilty method provide a convienent mean to impose incompressibilty condition which otherwise require various adhoc ways to satisfy the equation SUM dVi/dxi=0. But the method itself is an approximation which needs carefully numerical programming when very low compressibility coefficient is used.
