In this paper, general formulations for Rhie-Chow interpolation on co-located grid are derived. Unlike the standard Rhie-Chow interpolation, the general formulations are applicable for any flow conditions. It has observed that the original momentum-based interpolation due to Rhie and Chow has serious deficiency, such as under-relaxation factor dependence, failure to suppress saw-tooth pressure solutions with small time step size for unsteady state problems and wrong solutions or divergence with discontinuities. Thus the derivation of Rhie-Chow interpolation is first recalled, then the errors of numerical discretization are analyzed, finally, new formulations and some improvements are given.
