Abstract

Three-dimensional numerical solution of fluid dynamics using boundary-domain integral method is considered. A velocity- vorticity formulation of the Navier-Stokes equations is adopted. The kinematic equation is written in its parabolic version.

In the contemporary design of such devices computational fluid dynamics or better, numerical modelling and si
