Abstract

The development, use and application of a three-dimensional fluid flow computer code is described. The code runs on microcomputers with effective 3-D perspective color graphic displays of the results. The present version of the code retains several simplifications, uses a uniform rectangular grid system, and runs on microcomputers, thus providing a powerful and economical software capability. Equations are solved for the fully 3-D problem, including pressure, three velocity components and species mass fractions. The simulation is a finite difference time-marching procedure using an explicit formulation of the conservation equations, followed at each step by an iteration updating pressures and velocities so as to impose the continuity requirement. The present paper documents the problem, describes briefly its simulation, theory and assumptions, and gives results showing an application of the code to co-flowing round jet mixing.
