Development of a gridless CFD methodThe objective of this paper is to stimulate ideas concerning alternative approaches to discretizing fluid flow problems, i.e., the so-called gridless approach. The gridless approach uses only clouds of points and does not require that the points be connected to form a grid as is necessary in conventional CFD algorithms. The governing equations are solved directly by performing local least-squares curve fits in each cloud of points and then analytically differentiating the resulting curve fits to approximate the derivatives. A discussion of these topics is presented in viewgraph form.
