Abstract

The fully developed boundary element method (BEM) numerical model of compressible fluid dynamics is presented. In particular, the singular boundary domain integral approach, which has been established for the viscous incompressible flow problem, is modified and extended to capture the compressible fluid state. As test cases a natural convection of compressible fluid in a closed cavity and an L-shape cavity are studied. 1 Introduction This paper deals with a BEM numerical scheme developed for simulation of motion of compressible viscous fluid. The method is based on the approximate solution of the set of Navier-Stokes equations in the velocity-vorticity formulation. Particular attention is given to proper transformation of the governing differential equations into corresponding integral representations,
