Pressure-velocity coupling allowing acoustic calculation in low Mach number flow

Abstract : Low Mach number flow computation in co-located grid arrangement requires pressure- velocity coupling in order to prevent the checkerboard phenomenon. Two broad categories of pressure-velocity coupling methods for unsteady flows can be distinguished based on the time-step dependency of the coupling coefficient in the definition of the transporting velocity on a face of a control volume. As an example of the time-step independent cate- gory, the AUSM+-up scheme is studied. As an example of the second category, Rhie-Chow momentum interpolation methods are studied. Within the momentum interpolation techniques, again two broad categories can be distinguished based on the time-step depen- dency of the coupling coefficient used for unsteady flow computations, but when a steady state is reached. Variants of Rhie-Chow interpolation methods in each subcategory are studied on critical test cases. The result of the study is that for a good representation of unsteady flows containing acoustic information, the pressure-velocity coupling coefficient must explicitly depend on the time-step, but that the transporting velocity must become independent of the time-step when a steady state is reached.
