Numerical simulation of compressible gas flow coupled to heat conduction in two space dimensions
Korneeva, Daria Y.
The current thesis studies a model of two dimensional convection of an ideal gas in a rectangular domain having walls of finite thickness. The temperature outside of walls is considered constant. Heat exchange between walls and outside/inside air is computed using Newton's law of cooling. Heat transfer inside walls is modelled with the heat equation. The mathematical model inside enclosure involves Navier-Stokes equations coupled with equation of state for gas. The model is numerically studied using the method of large particles. One of the main goals of the current thesis was to develop a software in C# language for numerical solution of the above-described model. Physically meaningful results, including stream lines and distribution of parameters of gas and temperature inside solid walls were obtained.
