Two-Dimensional Unsteady Euler-Equation Solver for Arbitrarily Shaped Flow RegionsA new technique is described for solving supersonic fluid dynamics problems containing multiple regions of continuous flow, each bounded by a permeable or impermeable surface. Region boundaries are, in general, arbitrarily shaped and time dependent. Discretization of such a region for solution by conventional finite difference procedures is accomplished using an elliptic solver which alleviates the dependence on a particular base coordinate system. Multiple regions are coupled together through the boundary conditions. The technique has been applied to a variety of problems including a shock diffraction problem and supersonic flow over a pointed ogive.
