The second process, validation, compares the numerical solution with reliable physical measurements. Validation checks whether the solution replicates the physics of interest well. One can for instance compare the simulated flow field with PIV measurements and computed forces on a body with measurements from force balance or transducers. Validation implicitly assumes that numerical solution has been verified. It is crucial that both verification and validation are performed to ensure that the numerical solution is credible.

Note that the errors for one-sided finite-difference schemes have the same order of accuracy as the central-difference scheme for the first derivative, while the order of accuracy is reduced by one for the second derivative. Finite-Difference for Nonuniform Grid There are two approaches to develop finite-difference schemes for nonuniform grids. The first approach is to employ Taylor series expansion, Eq. 12), in physical space, as shown in Fig. 5a. 31) such that the grid on the transformed variable ξ is spaced uniformly, as illustrated in Fig.

7 Remarks We have provided an overview of numerical flow simulation, discussed the governing equations, and presented different discretization methods. The basic equations for fluid flow are partial differential equations and consist of the conservation laws and the constitutive relations. It is important to maintain the properties of the original differential equations in the discretized system in numerical methods. Further details on discretizations and numerical methods are provided in later chapters.
