Abstract

Fast, high-fidelity solution workflows for transient flow phenomena is an important challenge in the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) community. Current low-order methodologies suffer from large dissipation and dispersion errors and require large mesh sizes for unsteady flow simulations. Recently,...
