Description

RVCQ3D is a two-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis code for turbomachinery. It solves the Navier-Stokes equations on a blade-to-blade surface of revolution using explicit finite-difference techniques. It is applicable to compressors, turbines, and mixed-flow machines. Three differencing schemes are available – central differences, the AUSM+ scheme, and the H-CUSP scheme. Three turbulence models are also available – the Baldwin-Lomax, Cebeci-Smith, and Wilcox 2006 k-omega models.

Four test cases are included with RVCQ3D: An isolated airfoil, Goldman's turbine vane, a high-speed centrifugal compressor blade, and NASA compressor rotor 37. Excel files compare computed results to experimental data.

Grids must be generated with GRAPE, available separately. RVCQ3D requires a Fortran 90 compiler and PLOT3D-compatible CFD visualization software. It is usually run on Linux systems, but can be run on a PC or Mac.
