Abstract

This paper presents a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, which comprises a range of computational algorithms in the framework of high-resolution and high-order (nonoscillatory-based) methods. The CFD software suite, called Azure, includes the following methods: different Riemann solvers; numerical discretisation schemes ranging from 2nd order to 9th-order of accuracy; multi-block structured-grid, as well as fully unstructured and hybrid grid-based capabilities for handling any arbitrary geometry; Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS), Implicit Large Eddy Simulation (ILES) and hybrid ILES/RANS; and multi-physics models. Azure provides a computational platform for studying fundamental flow physics, simulating engineering flows around or inside complex geometries, as well as assessing the accuracy and computational efficiency of different numerical schemes and physics-based models, thus reducing the computational uncertainty and computational time. The paper presents the key numerical modeling features and validation examples ranging from simple canonical flows to aircraft configurations.
