(This session will run until 5:45PM)
3:15 PM-5:45 PM
Low speed flows are difficult to simulate numerically due to the presence of sound waves. In many applications, neither an incompressible approximation nor a full compressible numerical scheme would be appropriate. To make the low speed flow problem numerically feasible, one needs to be able to advance the fluid flow in time steps unrestricted by the sound speed. One way to achieve this goal is to separate the acoustics from the flow field. In this symposium, the speakers will present various techniques for splitting the flow field, results of numerical experiments, and applications to aeroacoustics and combustion computations.
The purpose of this symposium is to facilitate communications between various schools of thought on the subjects of computations of low mach number flow and computational aeroacoustics. The intended audience include engineers and mathematicians interested in computational methods for slightly compressible flow computations and/or sound generation by fluid flows.
