Eval- In pressure-weighted interpolation (Rhie and Chow, 1983; Zwart, 1999), the face velocity for the convective term in the continuity equation is determined by subtracting the difference between the pressure gradient and the interpolated pressure gradient from the linearly determined face fluxes. .
Two broad categories of pressure-velocity coupling methods for unsteady flows can be distinguished based on the time-step dependency of the coupling coefficient in the definition of the transporting velocity on a face of a control volume. As an example of the time-step independent cate- gory, the AUSM+-up scheme is studied.

However, this way of calculating the cell face velocities needs matrix inversion because of implicit scheme and hence requires long computing time. Choi et al. (1993) refined the momentum interpolation scheme of Rhie and Chow ... The hydrodynamic model solves the depth-averaged 2-D shallow water equations using the finite volume method on a non-staggered, curvilinear grid. It uses SIMPLE(C) procedures with Rhie and Chow's momentum interpolation technique to handle the pressure-velocity coupling.
For the open-valve mode, the mesh has a cell number ranging from 1.1 M at the pis- ton TDC to 2.4M when the piston is at BDC; a coarser mesh, with a cell number varying from 0.23 million (TDC) to 0.4 million (BDC) was used for the simulation of the engine with moving valve. The pressure-velocity coupling has been achieved using the artificial compressibility method. Based on extensive numerical tests, the capability and the performance of the LES and RANS models have been validated against experimental data. Then, the numerical model results of the velocity, pressure and bed shear stress fields were compared with the utilized, complimented with the Rhie-Chow scheme (Rhie and Chow, 1983) to eliminate non-physical oscillations of pressure field. For the discretization of the convective terms in the conservation equations, the deferred correction technique (Khosla and Rubin, 1974) has been used, which is a lower-order approximation plus Computational Fluid Dynamics-1(CFD-I) Course Number: 33-31-076-32 Course Content: 1- An Introduction to CFD and the Finite Volume Method (FVM) 2- Numerical Solution of the 1D Generic Transport Equation and Its Simplified Forms • Discretization of the Diffusion Term • Discretization of the Advection Term Lars Davidson: Numerical Methods for Turbulent Flow ...

The inherent decoupling of the pressure and velocity fields in this arrangement can be handled via a special interpolation procedure for the calculation of the cell face velocity named pressure‐weighted interpolation method (PWIM) (AIAA J. 1983; 21(11):1525–1532). In this paper a discussion on the alternatives to extend PWIM to unsteady ... Low Mach number flow computation in co-located grid arrangement requires pressure-velocity coupling in order to prevent the checkerboard phenomenon. A Rhie-Chow interpolation technique can be formulated with such a coupling involving an explicit time step dependence, suitable for unsteady computations.
