A quadtree-based adaptively-refined cartesian-grid algorithm for solution of the euler equations

Bulkök, Murat
A Cartesian method for solution of the steady two-dimensional Euler equations is produced. Dynamic data structures are used and both geometric and solution-based adaptations are applied. Solution adaptation is achieved through solution-based gradient information. The finite volume method is used with cell-centered approach. The solution is converged to a steady state by means of an approximate Riemann solver. Local time step is used for convergence acceleration. A multistage time stepping scheme is used to advance the solution in time. A number of internal and external flow problems are solved in order to demonstrate the efficiency and accuracy of the method.
