CAST - a finite volume method for predicting two-dimensional flow and heat transfer phenomena

Technical Report:

Abstract

The present report describes the computer program CAST for the Computer Aided Simulation of Turbulent Flows and its application to flow and heat transfer problems. CAST allows the calculation of recirculating (elliptic), two-dimensional (plane or axisymmetric), unsteady (or steady), low Mach number, laminar or turbulent flows with heat transfer. For laminar flows, CAST solves the Navier-Stokes equations. For turbulent flows, the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations are solved in connection with the k-{epsilon} two-equation turbulence model of Launder and Spalding (1974). The numerical solution procedure is a conservative finite-volume method in primitive variables (i.e. velocities, pressure and enthalpy) using a co-located (non-staggered) variable arrangement. The program is written in FORTRAN V. This manual is intended for readers with a basic knowledge in fluid mechanics, numerical analysis and FORTRAN. Its purpose is to present the mathematical models for flow and heat transfer predictions, to convey the main elements of the numerical solution procedure, and to explain the structure and use of the computer program.
