Complex Geometries

Most flows in engineering practice involve complex geometries which are not readily fit with Cartesian grids. Although the principles of discretization and solution methods for algebraic systems described earlier may be used, many modifications are required. The properties of the solution algorithm depend on the choices of the grid and of the vector and tensor components, and the arrangement of variables on the grid. These issues are discussed in this chapter.
