Abstract
STREAMLINE DIFFUSISD) METHODS FOR THE COMPUTATIONAL SOL- UTION OF THE EQUATIONS OF FLUID DYNAMICS HAVE BEEN SHOWN IN THEORY TO HAVE BOTH EXCELLENT STABILITY PROPERTIES AND HIGH ACCURACY. HOWEVER, SD METHODS HAVE NOT YET BEEN IMPLEMENT- ED IN COMPUTED CODES SOPHISTICATED OR EFFICIENT ENOUGH TO SOLVE LARGE FLUID FLOW PROBLEMS OF PRACTICAL INTEREST. KMS FUSION, INC., PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NEW STREAMLINE DIFFUSIONCOMPUTER CODE THAT FEATURES A PROMISING, PREVIOUSLY UNTESTEDTIME-DISXONTINUOUS GALERKIN METHOD COUPLED WITH AN EFFICIENTMULTIGRID POISSON EQUATION SOLVER. THE COMPLETED CODE IS INTENDED TO ACHIEVE FAST, STABLE, AND ACCURATE SOLUTIONS TO ENABLE KMS TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF SD FOR LARGE SCALE COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS. IN PHASE II, THIS SD METHOD WILL BE EXTENDED TO SOLVE THE FULL TIME-DEPENDENT NAVIER- STOKES EQUATIONS OF FLUID DYNAMICS . THIS EXTENDED SOFTWAREWILL BE USED FOR DETAILED QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE STUDIES OF FLUID DYNAMICS.
