where Su and Sv represent any other source terms that may be present (from buoyancy, rotation, turbulent stresses, etc). Before considering how to obtain the pressure ﬁeld, we ﬁrst examine alternative storage arrangements that can be used for the discretized ﬂow variables, since these have a bearing on how source terms are represented, and thus on how the schemes to be described may be implemented.

Overview

Up to now, we have mainly considered discretization schemes, and how they are used for a single equation. In practical ﬂow solvers, we have to solve a set of coupled pde’s. In 3-D, this involves determining U , V , W and P , as well as any additional quantities (temperature, enthalpy, turbulence energy, etc) that may be required in the problem. We have already examined how to discretize the momentum equations and solve them to obtain U , V and W . As explained, this can be done in an iterative fashion, employing under-relaxation if necessary, to account for the coupling between the equations. However, we do not have a transport equation for the pressure P . Instead, the 4th equation we have is the continuity equation – which does not even contain the pressure. In this lecture we are thus going to consider a strategy for handling the coupling between the velocity and pressure ﬁelds in a ﬂow computation. For now, we restrict attention to 2-D ﬂow, consider a steady-state ﬂow, and work within a ﬁnite volume framework on a simple rectangular mesh. This is sufﬁcient to demonstrate how schemes for coupling the pressure and velocity can be developed, and the same methods can readily be extended to 3-D and more complex problems.

Discretization

The U momentum equation can be integrated over the control volume shown below, resulting in a discretized equation of the form

au p Up = X au i Ui + Sup + Su

where Sup are the source terms arising from integrating the pressure gradient over the cell, and Su represents any other source terms. One convenient arrangement for storing the discretized variables is to use a single set of control volumes, so all variables are stored at the same locations (colocated). This has the advantage that all geometrical data only needs to be stored once. However, as outlined below, this arrangement does also have some disadvantages.

If P is stored at the same position as U , we need to interpolate between PP and PE to get Pe , the pressure at the east face of the cell (and similarly for the west face). The source term Sup can then be approximated as

Sup = (P w − P e ) (∆x∆y ) ∆x

the continuity equation does not explicitly contain P . P i-2 i-1 i i+1 i+2 Methods are available to overcome the above problem. so there is a relatively weak linkage between the velocity and local pressure ﬁeld (as PP is not used).On a uniform grid. However. This can lead to chequerboarding: a pressure ﬁeld that oscillates from node to node on the grid can still appear as uniform to the discretized momentum equation. 7 S A much stronger coupling between the velocity and pressure ﬁeld nodal values is obtained by using a staggered grid. At each iteration a ‘correction’ to the pressure distribution is calculated. The momentum equations provide us with a set of discretized equations which can be solved for U and V . designed to drive the local velocity ﬁeld towards one that satisﬁes both momentum and continuity equations. The disadvantage of this is that there are separate control volumes for U .5(PW − PE ). Dv = ∆x/an . if we know the pressure ﬁeld. for example. Ue denotes a nodal value of the U velocity. V and P . The pressure gradient term in the equation for Ue is now simply Sup = (P P − P E ) (∆x∆y ) ∆x (4) Note that. and Su and Sv any other source terms. 6 Vn = (6b) v where Du = ∆y/au e . we thus work within a staggered grid arrangement. After dividing through by the diagonal coefﬁcient. for now we consider an N alternative arrangement that results in a stronger linkage between adjacent pressure and velocity values. PW Uw The SIMPLE Scheme PN Vn PP Vs PS Ue PE A widely-used scheme for coupling the pressure and velocity is the SIMPLE (Semi Implicit Method for Pressure Linked Equations) scheme of Patankar (1980). For now. Instead.p. this interpolation gives Pw − Pe = 0. The summation on the right hand sides represents the contributions from the surrounding nodal values. w P e E . However. In this arrangement the velocity components are stored at the centres of the faces of the pressure control volume. whilst PP could be signiﬁcantly higher or lower). Sup and Svp are the pressure-related source terms. we consider how an iterative procedure can be used to adjust the pressure ﬁeld in order to ensure that the resulting velocity ﬁeld does satisfy continuity. The discretized momentum equations for Ue and Vn are written as: au e Ue = X au i Ui + Sup + Su av n Vn = X av i Vi + Svp + Sv (5) Such overheads become particularly cumbersome in non-orthogonal and 3-D grid arrangements. 5 . and Vn a nodal value of V . which is outlined in the following. Such schemes are generally referred to as Pressure Correction schemes. so more geometrical information has to be stored. 8 . . the discretized momentum equations can be written in the form Ue = X au Ui i + Du (PP − PE ) + Su au e X av Vi i + Dv (PP − PN ) + Sv av n (6a) so there is a direct coupling between the velocity and the pressure values at adjacent nodes.p. although we have 3 equations for U . In the CFD II course we do consider how to handle the case when all quantities are stored at the same location.
