    Abstract

    A nodal-point, finite-volume space discretization of viscous fluxes in compressible Navier-Stokes equations is presented. To advance the solution in time, an explicit five-stage Runge-Kutta scheme has been used. To accelerate the rate of convergence to steady state, local time stepping, residual averaging, and enthalpy damping have been employed. The scheme has been evaluated by solving laminar flow over a semi-infinite flat plate and an NACA 0012 air foil using thin-layer approximation. It has been observed here that fourth-order artificial dissipation is sufficient for numerical stability. The results have been compared with available theoretical and numerical solutions.
