Abstract

This work describes a high order accurate discontinuous finite element method for the numerical solution of the equations governing compressible inviscid flows. Our investigation has focused on the problem of correctly prescribing the boundary conditions along curved boundaries. “Ale show by numerical testing that, in the presence of curved boundaries, a high order approximation of the solution requires a corresponding high-order approximation of the geometry of the domain. Numerical solutions of transonic flows are presented which illustrate the versatility and the accuracy of the proposed method.
