LEMOS, E. M.; SECCHI, A. R. e BISCAIA JR, E. C.. Development of a high-order finite volume method with multiblock partition techniques. Braz. J. Chem. Eng. [online]. 2012, vol.29, n.1, pp. 183-201. ISSN 0104-6632. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-66322012000100019.
This work deals with a new numerical methodology to solve the Navier-Stokes equations based on a finite volume method applied to structured meshes with co-located grids. High-order schemes used to approximate advective, diffusive and non-linear terms, connected with multiblock partition techniques, are the main contributions of this paper. Combination of these two techniques resulted in a computer code that involves high accuracy due the high-order schemes and great flexibility to generate locally refined meshes based on the multiblock approach. This computer code has been able to obtain results with higher or equal accuracy in comparison with results obtained using classical procedures, with considerably less computational effort.
