A New Method for Constructing the Coefficients of Pressure Correction Equation for Colocated Unstructured Grids

2009 American Journal of Applied Sciences  
One of the important equations in numerical solution of Navier Stokes equations is the pressure correction equation. In this article, a new method for constructing the coefficients of this equation for colocated unstructured meshes is proposed. This method is based on momentum interpolation. The method is compared with the approach adopted in literature. The complete discretization of the Navier Stokes equations using finite volume method is presented. An algorithm similar to SIMPLE is used to
