Abstract: The continued research and development of high-order methods in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is primarily motivated by their potential to significantly reduce the computational cost and memory usage required to obtain a solution to a desired level of accuracy. In this work, a high-order Central Essentially Non-Oscillatory (CENO) finite-volume scheme is developed for the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations in three dimensions. The proposed CENO scheme is based on a hybrid solution reconstruction procedure using a fixed central stencil. A solution smoothness indicator facilitates the hybrid switching between a high-order k-exact reconstruction technique, and a monotonicity preserving limited piecewise linear reconstruction algorithm. The resulting scheme is applied to the compressible forms of the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations in three dimensions. The latter of which includes the application of this high-order work to the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of turbulent non-reacting flows.
