TL;DR: The performances of SIMPLE, SIMPLER, and SIMPLEC are compared for two recirculating flow problems and several modifications to the method are shown which both simplify its implementation and reduce solution costs.
Abstract: Variations of the SIMPLE method of Patankar and Spalding have been widely used over the past decade to obtain numerical solutions to problems involving incompressible flows. The present paper shows several modifications to the method which both simplify its implementation and reduce solution costs. The performances of SIMPLE, SIMPLER, and SIMPLEC (the present method) are compared for two recirculating flow problems. The paper is addressed to readers who already have experience with SIMPLE or its variants.
TL;DR: In this article, the melting of pure gallium in a rectangular cavity has been numerically investigated using the enthalpy-porosity approach for modeling combined convection-diffusion phase change.
Abstract: The melting of pure gallium in a rectangular cavity has been numerically investigated using the enthalpy-porosity approach for modeling combined convection-diffusion phase change. The major advantage of this technique is that it allows a fixed-grid solution of the coupled momentum and energy equations to be undertaken without resorting to variable transformations. In this work, a two-dimensional dynamic model is used and the influence of laminar natural-convection flow on the melting process is considered. Excellent agreement exists between the numerical predictions and experimental results available in the literature. The enthalpy-porosity approach has been found to converge rapidly, and is capable of producing accurate results for both the position and morphology of the melt front at different times with relatively modest computational requirements. These results may be taken to be a sound validation of this technique for modeling isothermal phase changes in metallurgical systems.
TL;DR: In this article, a control-volume approach for solving two-dimensional elliptic problems involving fluid flow and heat and mass transfer has been developed based on a power-law formulation for the combined convection-diffusion influence.
Abstract: A calculation method based on the control-volume approach has been developed for solving two-dimensional elliptic problems involving fluid flow and heat and mass transfer. The main features of the method include a power-law formulation for the combined convection-diffusion Influence, an equation-solving scheme that consists of a block-correction method coupled with a line-by-line procedure, and a new algorithm for handling the interlinkage between the momentum and continuity equations. Although the method is described for steady two-dimensional situations, its extension to unsteady flows and three-dimensional problems is very straightforward.
TL;DR: The present paper demonstrates how the additive correction method of Settari and Aziz can be used and extended to improve the convergence rate for two- and three-dimensional problems when the coefficients are anisotropic.
Abstract: The solution of large sets of equations is required when discrete methods are used to solve fluid flow and heat transfer problems The cost of the solution often becomes prohibitive when the coefficients of the algebraic equations become strongly anisotropic or when the number of equations in the set becomes large The present paper demonstrates how the additive correction method of Settari and Aziz can be used and extended to improve the convergence rate for two- and three-dimensional problems when the coefficients are anisotropic Such methods are interpreted as simple multigrid methods With this as the basis a new general multigrid method is developed that has attractive properties The efficiency of the new method is compared to that of a conventional multigrid method, and its performance is demonstrated on other problems
