Abstract

Abstract An upwind finite element scheme for the incompressible viscous flow at high Reynolds number was proposed by Tabata and Fujima [1]. The scheme has the potential to approximate the advection term in third-order accuracy. We apply it to a two-dimensional non-stationary analysis of air flow around an Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV), which is initially moving at a constant speed and stops after a few seconds with constant deceleration. The results are qualitatively good and will be soon compared with experimental ones.
