A robust and efficient finite volume method for compressible inviscid and viscous twophase flows [A robust and efficient finite volume method for compressible viscous twophase flows]
Abstract
A robust and efficient densitybased finite volume method is developed for solving the sixequation single pressure system of twophase flows at all speeds on hybrid unstructured grids. Unlike conventional approaches where an expensive exact Riemann solver is normally required for computing numerical fluxes at the twophase interfaces in addition to AUSMtype fluxes for singlephase interfaces in order to maintain stability and robustness in cases involving interactions of strong pressure and voidfraction discontinuities, a volumefraction coupling term for the AUSM^{+}up fluxes is introduced in this work to impart the required robustness without the need of the exact Riemann solver. The resulting method is significantly less expensive in regions where otherwise the Riemann solver would be invoked. A transformation from conservative variables to primitive variables is presented and the primitive variables are then solved in the implicit method in order for the current finite volume method to be able to solve, effectively and efficiently, low Mach number flows in traditional multiphase applications, which otherwise is a great challenge for the standard densitybased algorithms. Here, a number of benchmark test cases are presented to assess the performance and robustness of the developed finite volume method for both inviscid and viscous twophase flow problems.more »
