Abstract

The name UNIVERSE denotes Unification of essentially Eonoscillatory interpolation techniques with a geometrically VERSatile implementation. The finite-elementlike formulation in UNIVERSE-series codes is sufficiently general to include the treatment of hexahedral, triangular prism and tetrahedral cell shapes. Truly multidimensional interpolation is employed along with least-squares and ENO treatments. Simple and complex “Riemann Solvers” are employed as needed. The same code can be used for 1-d, 2-d and 3-d problems. This paper describes the inviscid formulation underlying UNIVERSEseries codes as well as the application of the methodology to Space Shuttle Orbiter configurations using unstructured grids.
