Abstract

The present study describes the results of validating a high-quality computational scheme of kinetic energy conservation characteristics under a collocated grid system. In the present study, the pseudo-inviscid incompressible flow around the Kármán-Trefftz airfoil is analyzed. In this analysis, the kinetic energy conservation error is reduced by temporally evolving the governing equation using pressure increments in fractional steps. This sufficient conservation of kinetic energy is validated using an inviscid homogeneous isotropic fluctuation field. The velocity field obtained by this analysis is compared to that of the potential flow obtained using the Kármán-Trefftz airfoil. The numerical analysis is also validated using the lift coefficient profile as a function of a small angle of attack.
