2 Last Time… Started looking at the computation of fluid flow » Sequential schemes » How to introduce pressure into continuity? » Checkerboarding and where to store (u,P)
Background image of page 2
3 This Time … Re-examine where to store pressure vis-à-vis velocity » Checkerboarding problems Look at staggered mesh as a remedy for checker- boarding for structured meshes

4 Pressure Calculation Issues Problem in using sequential procedures to compute pressure No pressure in incompressible continuity equation » Need to find a way to introduce p into continuity » Path to solution issue
Background image of page 4
5 Pressure Calculation Issues(Cont’d) Another issue has to do with storage of pressure and velocity » Obvious choice is to store pressure and velocity (u and v) at cell centroids » Turns out that this type of “co-located” storage is problematic » Gives wiggly pressure/velocity solutions » Feature of discretization, not path to solution » Will not go away no matter what “path to solution” we use
