 February 13, 2008, 14:00 Smooth reconstruction of flowsolution #1 Carlos Guest   Posts: n/a Can anyone give me any references about smooth reconstruction of different order of accuracy of numerical flow solutions for postprocessing? I need to compute the result of applying the differential Euler or Navier-Stokes operators to a continuous flowfield obtained by smooth reconstruction of a numerical solution obtained with a node-centered 3D finite-volume code. Any clues? Thanks!

Hope this helps.
