An upwind interpolation scheme for cavitating flows on nonuniform meshes

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A high order upwinding interpolation scheme has been developed for highly convective cavitating incompressible flow using Lagrange polynomials on nonuniform rectangular meshes. This method has been tested for vortex shedding (single-phase) from bluff bodies and then extended to the case of cavitation (two-phase) from bluff bodies. An advanced boundary treatment has been applied for the pressure term in order to guarantee the stability and accuracy of the solution.
