In this paper, a simple and efficient third-order weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) reconstruction is developed for three-dimensional flows, in which the idea of two-dimensional WENO-AO scheme on unstructured meshes is adopted. In the classical finite volume type WENO schemes, the linear weights for the candidate stencils are obtained by solving linear systems at Gaussian quadrature points of cell interface. For the three-dimensional scheme, such operations at twenty-four Gaussian

Another drawback of classical WENO schemes is the appearance of negative weights with irregular local topology, which affect the robustness of spatial reconstruction. In such three-dimensional WENO-AO scheme, a simple strategy of selecting big stencil and sub-stencils for reconstruction is proposed. With the reconstructed quadratic polynomial from big stencil and linear polynomials from sub-stencils, the linear weights are chosen as positive numbers with the requirement that their sum equals one and be independent of local mesh topology. With such WENO reconstruction, a high-order gas-kinetic scheme (HGKS) is developed for both three-dimensional inviscid and viscous flows. Taken the grid velocity into account, the scheme is extended into the moving-mesh computation as well. Numerical results are provided to illustrate the good performance of such new finite volume WENO schemes. In the future, such WENO reconstruction will be extended to the unstructured meshes.
