Abstract
TRANSOM is a Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes solver being developed at DREA for calculating the flow around ships and submarines. TRANSOM will eventually allow the fluid region to be broken into blocks of different types (e.g. structured or unstructured) with different solvers being used on each block. As an intermediate step, this document describes the implementation in TRANSOM of a pseudo-copressibility solver suitable for use on structured multi-block grids: i.e. grids in which each block is structured. It is restricted to the case in which the coordinate metrics are continuous across connected block boundaries. In this case, the algorithms for calculating and assembling the linear system used by the solver can be generalized quite easily from the algorithm for a single block.
