The folder provides input decks for the Conservation Element/Solution Element (CESE) solvers available in LS-DYNA. The CESE method is a novel numerical framework for conservation laws. It has many non-traditional features, including a unified treatment of space and time, the introduction of conservation element (CE) and solution element (SE), and a novel shock capturing strategy without using a Riemann solver. To date, this method has been used to solve many different types of flow problems, such as detonation waves, shock/acoustic wave interaction, cavitating flows, and chemical reaction flows. In LS-DYNA, it has been extended to also solve fluid-structure interaction problems with the embedded (or immersed) boundary approach or moving (or fitting) mesh approach.
