Generation of surface-fitted coordinate gridsAn accurate numerical solution of the Navier-Stokes equations is strongly dependent on the description of the flow geometry. In the past, rectangular grids led to an ill description of curved boundaries and consequently hindered finite-difference solutions. Now, it is accepted that body-fitted coordinate systems give a much better description of complex flow geometries. The generation of body-fitted curvilinear coordinate grids in two dimensions by the solution of a nonlinear system of elliptic equations has been proposed Thompson. It has been extended to three dimensions and applied in practical configurations.
