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.
Numerical Simulations of Compressible Flows (Part I of III)
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.
