Computational Methods for the Euler Equations Before discussing the Euler Equations and computational methods for them, let’s look at what we’ve learned so far: Method Assumptions/Flow type 2-D panel 2-D, Incompressible, Irrotational Inviscid Vortex lattice 3-D, Incompressible, Irrotational Inviscid, Small disturbance Potential method 3-D, Subsonic compressible, Irrotational, Inviscid, Prandtl-Glauert Small disturbance Euler CFD 3-D, Compressible (no M limit), Rotational, Shocks, Inviscid The only major effect missing after this week will be viscous-related effects. 2-D Euler Equations in Integral Form Consider an arbitrary area (i.e. a fixed control volume) through which flows a compressible inviscid flow: n v outward pointing normal (unit length) dS elemental (differential) surface length j dx i dy dS n v v v = Note: Path around surface is taken so that interior of control volume is on left. y x c dS C δ n v dS n v dy dx dS
