AB - This paper consists of two parts. (1) General curved surface fitting and grid refining. A method of fitting a set of given discrete points on several stream lines to give a smooth and arbitraily twisted stream surface was developed. Based upon the small deformation theory for thin plate, the Kirchhoffâ€™s Equation was solved and twofold transformations were incorporated. The first step is the transformation from physical surface into computational surface and the second is affine transformation. The accuracy of the result is about 0.004% and the CPU time needed is reasonable for engineering application. Then the refined computational grid and the calculation for the geometrical quantities of the grid are carried out on the fitted surface. (2) Calculation of the flow along the fitted stream surface. Employing non-orthogonal curvilinear coordinate system, the fitted stream surface is selected as a coordinate surface, so that there are only two velocity components even when the stream surface is arbitrarily twisted, and it is very convenient to define the stream function. The general equation for the quasi-linear stream function governing the flow along the fitted stream surface was employed. This was solved with the method of direct decomposition of matrix. The numerical examples are also included in this paper. The present method can be used for S1 and S2 stream surfaces and other engineering calculations.
