In the present study, a two-dimensional hybrid flow solver has been developed for the accurate and efficient simulation of steady and unsteady flow fields. The flow solver was cast to accommodate two different topologies of computational meshes. Triangular meshes are adopted in the near-body region such that complex geometric configurations can be easily modeled, while adaptive Cartesian meshes are utilized in the off-body region to resolve the flow more accurately with less numerical dissipation by adopting a spatially high-order accurate scheme and solution-adaptive mesh refinement technique. Adaptive Cartesian meshes can be generated automatically and allow to handle data efficiently via quad-tree data structures. A chimera mesh approach has been employed to link the two flow regimes adopting each mesh topology. A second-order accurate vertex-centered scheme and a 3rd - or 5th -order accurate cell-centered WENO scheme have been utilized in the near-body region and in the off-body region, respectively. Validations were made for the unsteady inviscid vortex convection and the steady and unsteady turbulent flows over an NACA0012 airfoil, and the results were compared with other computational and experimental results.
