Abstract

The GSMAC-FEM (generalized simplified marker and cell FEM), which is an extension of the SMAC-FDM, is a stable and fast scheme for an incompressible viscous flow. The rotational form of the Navier-Stokes equations in which velocity and the Bernoulli function are variables is used in the GSMAC method. Velocity components and Bernoulli function are interpolated as a linear function and a constant function, respectively. This interpolation is simple and convenient for creating the mesh system. However, the approximation which is mentioned above makes it difficult to analyze inlet-outlet flows including the Neumann boundary conditions. The present paper shows a new modified GSMAC method which is applicable to high Reynolds flows with Neumann boundary condition (especially the pressure boundary).
