Application of the Galerkin/Least-Squares Formulation to the Analysis of Hypersonic Flows: II. Flow Past a Double Ellipse
A finite element method for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations is introduced. The discretization is based on entropy variables. The methodology is developed within the framework of a Galerkin/least-squares formulation to which a discontinuity-capturing operator is added. Results for four test cases selected among those of the Workshop on Hypersonic Flows for Reentry Problems are presented.
