Numerical Simulation of 2D Flow in a Curved Channel
This paper is concerned with a new numerical method of two-dimensional flow. The governing system of differential equations is transformed into an equivalent system applied over a square-grid network in order to overcome the difficulties and inaccuracies associated with the determination of characteristics near the flow boundaries. The MacCormack two-step explicit scheme with second-order accuracy is used for the solution of the transformed system of equations. The present numerical model has been used to numerically compute flow in sharply curved channel.
