Numerical simulation of an internal gravity waves past a moving body in a
stably stratified flow is performed in comparison with laboratory
experiments. The flow field in the towing tank with a moving thin
horizontal strip is modeled using different computational ways and
different numerical schemes.
The mathematical model is based on the
Boussinesq approximation of the averaged Navier--Stokes equations. The
resulting set of partial
differential equations is then solved by two different numerical schemes. The
first method is the second-order finite volume AUSM MUSCL scheme
combined with the artificial compressibility method in dual time . For the
time integration the second order BDF method is used in physical time, while
the third order Runge-Kutta method is used in artificial time. The second
scheme is based on the high order compact finite-difference discretizations.
The time integration is carried out by the Strong Stability Preserving
Runge-Kutta scheme.
The developing of the internal waves is studied by different ways. The
obstacle is supposed either as the stationary in the incoming flow or as the
moving body in the stratified fluid.
In the simplest case, the thin body is modeled only by the appropriate boundary
condition, then via penalization technique or by simple immersed boundary
method. All computations are compared each other and also with the experiment.
