Abstract

Object oriented programming (OOP) offer several advantages over traditional structural languages. Most of the codes to implement finite-volume formulation, however, are legacy codes that are written primarily in Fortran. If a finite volume cell can be treated as an object, it can be imparted the decision making power to update its field. A cell where nothing is happening will simply turn itself off, thereby, saving unnecessary computations. Parallelization can be a natural extension of such computing approach. In this paper an object-oriented design of the SIMPLE algorithm is presented. Using Java a three-dimensional energy equation solver has been implemented. The ultimate goal of this project is to develop an object-oriented code that can be easily adopted to simulate opposed and concurrent-flow flame spread.
