Numerical Simulations of Compressible Flows (Part I of III)

The study of compressible flows has been and continues to be considerable interest to a wide range of researchers in disciplines encompassing engineering, the physical sciences, and the mathematical science. Numerical simulations are being used as an experimental tool to investigate fundamental phenonema in compressible flows.

High resolution shock capturing methods, combined with adaptive mesh refinement techniques, are among the most important developments in this field.

The speakers will present some of the latest developments in this important field. They will discuss high resolution shock capturing methods and various adaptive mesh refinements techniques, with applications to both unsteady and steay computution of gas dynamics, multifluid and reacting flows.
