    Abstract

    An overview is given of a space-time discontinuous Galerkin finite element method for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations. This method is well suited for problems with moving (free) boundaries which require the use of deforming elements. In addition, due to the local discretization, the space-time discontinuous Galerkin method is well suited for mesh adaptation and parallel computing. The algorithm is demonstrated with computations of the unsteady ow field about a delta wing and a NACA0012 airfoil in rapid pitch up motion.
