UCNS3D: An open-source high-order finite-volume unstructured CFD solver
UCNS3D is an open-source computational solver for compressible flows on unstructured meshes. State-of-the-art high-order methods and their associated benefits can now be implemented for industrial-scale CFD problems due to the flexibility and highly-automated generation offered by unstructured meshes. We present the governing equations of the physical models employed in UCNS3D, and the numerical framework developed for their solution. The code has been designed so that extended to other systems of equations and numerical models is straightforward. The employed methods are validated towards a series of stringent well-established test problems against experimental or analytical solutions, where the full capabilities of UCNS3D in terms of applications spectrum, robustness, efficiency, and accuracy are demonstrated.
