    This book offers a compact primer on advanced numerical flux functions in computational fluid dynamics (CFD). It comprehensively introduces readers to methods used at the forefront of compressible flow simulation research. Further, it provides a comparative evaluation of the methods discussed, helping readers select the best numerical flux function for their specific needs.

    The first two chapters of the book reviews finite volume methods and numerical functions, before discussing issues commonly encountered in connection with each. The third and fourth chapter, respectively, address numerical flux functions for ideal gases and more complex fluid flow cases― multiphase flows, supercritical fluids and magnetohydrodynamics. In closing, the book highlights methods that provide high levels of accuracy.

    The concise content provides an overview of recent advances in CFD methods for shockwaves. Further, it presents the author’s insights into the advantages and disadvantages of each method, helping readers implement the numerical methods in their own research.

    <p>To accurately obtain a drag value for slender bodies (e.g., a rocket used in wind tunnel testing), base pressure and cavity pressure are required to be corrected to remove the effect of a sting. As the drag value significantly depends on the correction of the base/cavity pressure, attention should be paid, in spite of the absence of clear guidelines, to decide these two pressure values. In this study, to resolve this issue, wind tunnel test and numerical calculation results are used. As a result, first, we found that it is appropriate to measure the pressure near the base surface at four points and average them to estimate the base pressure. Second, the cavity pressure can be estimated the same as the uniform-flow static pressure even when shock waves are generated around the vehicle body. Based on these corrections, the total drag coefficient, <i>C</i><sub>D</sub>, showed an effective agreement between the wind tunnel test and computational fluid dynamics. Furthermore, in absence of the sting, the drag value increased by 8%.</p>
