In this vignette, we highlight unsteady flow inside a skewed cavity. The calculations were performed using a higher-order discretised form of the Navier-Stokes equations using a non-orthogonal, collocated finite volume grid.
Simulation and computational methods have been vital in the development of modern astronomy. Students looking to study almost any form of astrophysics and astronomy, be it observational or theoretical, will frequently be exposed to computation in some form or another. Having the skills necessary to work quickly and efficiently in a computational environment is a significant advantage.
