  4. Abstract:
  5. The objective of this work is to numerically study the fluid flow and acoustic field of a supersonic impinging jet by applying the vorticity confinement (VC) method. For this aim, the three-dimensional compressible Navier-Stokes equations with the incorporation of the VC method are considered and the resulting system of equations is solved by using the sixth-order compact finite-difference scheme. To eliminate the numerical instability, a low-pass high-order filter is used. The nonreflective boundary conditions are applied for all the free boundaries and the radiated sound field is obtained by the Kirchhoff surface integration. Comparisons of the present results with the experimental data and other numerical simulations show that the solution methodology adopted based on the application of the VC method with the high-order compact finite-difference scheme provides a good prediction of the fluid flow and the acoustic field of the impingement region on coarser grids than that usually required in the LESs, and thus, the calculations of coarse grid LESs are improved. © S.
