A numerical method is presented in this paper for the solution of flow field in marine gas turbine air intake filtration channel. The flow field was successfully calculated by this method, and aerodynamic characteristics were obtained for various types of filtration channels. This work is expected to be of practical importance for the design of such filters. Upstream difference was adopted to discretize the non-conservative type N-S equation for two-dimensional, time-dependnet, viscous and incompressible flow, and the stability, convergence, accuracy and artificial viscosity of the resulting difference equation were examined. This equation can be used to calculate viscous flows with Reynolds number up to tens of thousands. Also presented in this paper is a calculation method for treating wall vortex at boundary inflection points. Careful studies show that calculation based on the difference equational and wall vortex treatment proposed here are in good agreement with experimental results.
