Compressible flow tutorials

4 months ago by
Hi I'm searching for tutorials/examples for simulation of compressible flow in fenics. I searched a lot and most of the tutorials/materials available are for incompressible flow. If you could point out any materials/examples/documentation for simulation of compressible flow (including shock) using fenics (python interface), I'll be grateful.

Thank you!

If you want to dive into the deep end, you can try my side project

There is a Sod's shock tube example in addition to compressible flow around a NACA0012 airfoil.
Any plans to add flux limiters to your project?

I'd be interested to see a flux capacitor in operation.

This is very interesting. Is there some documentation on the methods used ? DG for fluid flows requires high order representation of curved boundaries. Did you do this in this code ? Is there any new developments in fenics that allow isoparametric elements to represent curved boundaries ? Last I checked this was not possible and was a major drawback to using fenics for compressible flows.

Indeed this is a limitation of FEniCS as-is. The new dolfin-x project has an objective to include high order boundary representation.

There is a simple Ringleb flow problem in the project which only works in serial. This problem demonstrates the sub-optimal convergence rates when using a boundary of insufficient regularity.

There a paper in press, shown in the project readme. Preprint available here

The preprint is behind a login/password, not publicly accessible.
