The implementation of an overset grid method into a compressible in-house computational fluid dynamics solver is described. The framework employs a novel algorithm for the generation of the composite grid, i.e. to identify the discretisation, interpolation and non-physical points. This algorithm was designed to minimise and simplify the user input, while maintaining the flexibility to handle complex setups. An explicit fourth-order Lagrange interpolation scheme is used, so that the formal order of accuracy of the finite difference scheme used in the flow solver is matched. An instability linked to the possible presence of uncoupled numerical solutions on separate grids sharing the same physi..
