Abstract

A high order upwinding interpolation scheme has been developed for highly convective cavitating incompressible flow using Lagrange polynomials on nonuniform rectangular meshes. This method has been tested for vortex shedding (single-phase) from bluff bodies and then extended to the case of cavitation (two-phase) from bluff bodies. An advanced boundary treatment has been applied for the pressure term in order to guarantee the stability and accuracy of the solution. 1 Introduction Two-phase flows have been of late, a topic of great interest to the modern fluid dynamicist. Due to the complexities involved in solving multiple sets of Navier
