### Why is my Runge-Kutta 4 solution to the 1-D advection equation decaying so quickly?

I am trying to numerically solve the advection equation $y_t + y_x = 0$ using a the "classical" Runge-Kutta 4 explicit timestepping method, along with a left-hand finite difference ...

### Mineral dissolution and solute transport around a solid

I am trying to simulate solute transport of acid (HCl) and consequent mineral dissolution around a grain (calcite). The governing equation for transport is the advection-diffusion equation, given as: ...

### Advection diffusion equation using Crank-Nicolson with total flux and Diriclet BCs

I am trying to model the 1D advection-diffusion equation: $${\partial c \over \partial t} = D_c{\partial^2 c \over \partial x^2} -u{\partial c \over \partial x}.$$ With Robin boundary conditions that ...

### Solute transport around a solid obstacle

I am a newbie in CFD and single/multiphase flow and transport in general. As part of my quest to learn, I am trying to model solute transport around a solid object in the center of a 2D domain. The ...

### Instability at the boundary of a finite difference simulation of a hyperbolic PDE

I want to simulate the hyperbolic partial differential equation $$W_{tt} + V W_{tx} + k_E V W_x + k W_t = 0,$$ but I am having trouble finding a discrete analog of this equation which is numerically ...

### Galerkin Least-Squares stabilization for FEM solution advection (hyperbolic) equations

I am playing with Galerkin Least-Squares stabilization to solve advection diffusion problem in the context of the finite element method. This works very well for steady-state advection-diffusion ...

### Semi-analytical/empirical modelling of wall boundary conditions in advection-diffusion-reaction equation with distributed source

Let's suppose I need to numerically solve a 3D steady-state transport equation of the form $$\nabla \cdot (\mathbf{u} c) = \nabla \cdot (D \nabla c) - \lambda c + S$$ where $c$ is the transported ...
