Brian Spalding: Some Contributions to Computational Fluid Dynamics During the Period 1993 to 2004

  • Michael R. MalinEmail author


This paper describes some contributions to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) made by Professor Brian Spalding whilst working at Concentration Heat and Momentum Limited (CHAM) during the period 1993–2004. The discussions focus principally on those areas with which the author had been directly involved with Brian and colleagues at CHAM. Some of the material is now well known in the field, and some not, but familiar material is not submitted as a new or original contribution, but rather to provide examples of Brian’s unique approach to solving practical CFD problems and to explain their origin. The following areas of work are described together with their influence in the field, where this is appropriate: the differential-equation wall-distance calculator; the LVEL model of turbulence; the IMMERSOL model of thermal radiation; virtual mass modelling in Eulerian–Eulerian descriptions of two-phase flow; a space-marching method for hyperbolic and transonic flow; and an automatic convergence-promoting algorithm for SIMPLE-based CFD codes.
