|Our work at AUB started in 1990 with the development
of number of high resolution schemes such as the STOIC scheme,
a family of bounded Skew Scheme, work on adaptive Very High Resolution
Schemes adn more recently on the implementation of High Resolution
schemes in unstructured grids. The formulation of nearly allschemes
was based on the Normalized Variable Diagram of Leonard., and a an
extension developed by the group the Normalized Variable and Space
Near the mid 90's we started
researching pressure-based algorithm based on the SIMPLE algorithm
of Spalding and Patankar. We worked on a unifying the formulation
of large number of pressure based schemessuch as PRIME, SIMPLEC,
SIMPLER, PISO, SIMPLEX, PISOC, in addition to the SIMPLE algorithm.
Basic characteristics for these scheme were established and tested
in a range of flow test problems. This was followed by the
re-formulation of these schemes for all speed flow simulation, hence
accounting for density variation. Work continued on the extension
of these schemes for the simulation of multi-fluid algorithm both
compressible and incompressible.
Multifluid flow simulation
became our research focus in the beginning of year 2000 and continues
to form an important thrust for our research.
More recently we
started working on acceleration techniques for flow simulation
such as the use of multigrids and work on improveming pressure-based
