Calculation procedure is presented for computation of steady,recirculating viscous flows in complex configurations. The algorithm has been developed for non-orthogonal coordinate systems using collocated variable arrangement. In order to handle both incompressible and compressible flows, pressure has been selected as a primary dependent variable in preference to density. The pressure field is evaluated using the pressure-velocity correction strategy of the SIMPLE algorithm, suitably modified for collocated variable arrangement.The capability of the three-dimensional version of the algorithm has been demonstrated for prediction of two incompressible laminar flow situations with complex geometry.
