### TVD slope / flux limiters formulation

Even if the formulation is the same the TVD slope limiter can be applied: to state reconstruction at the interface, in 1D FV formulation, we reconstruct the $Q^*_{j+1/2}$ and the $Q^*_{j-1/2}$ in the ...

### Finite volume method on a nonuniform grid

I would like to ask a question on the implementation of finite volume method on a non-uniform grid in solving Navier-Stokeq equations. I will just post the screenshot of a PhD thesis, where I found ...

### Projection method FVM poisson part, adding source term

The idea of the method is to decompose the Navier-Stokes equation into the solenoidal and irrotational parts. $$\frac{\partial u}{\partial t}+u(\nabla \cdot u)=-\frac{1}{\rho}\nabla p+\nabla ^2 u$$ ...

### Discretization of a non-linear ODE using FDM isn't grid indepenent

I am trying to solve the ODE : $\frac{d^2T}{dx^2} = \omega_1 T+\omega_2 T^2$ + using different numerical methods. I have tried the following discretizations so far and none of them seem to be grid ...

### Unstructured mesh preprocessing

For solving PDE with self written code it is needed to preprocess the data from mesh generators. I recently started shifting from cartesian grid to unstructured. I finished reading up to FVM part of ...

### FV Discretization of source term in 2D Poisson Equation

I am learning Finite Volume method using the textbook "An Introduction to CFD: Finite Volume Method" by Veersteg and Malalasekera. I would like to solve a heat conduction problem over a ...

### How are finite volume method boundary conditions implemented without using ghost-cells?

I'm currently trying to implement my own FVM code in cpp, but when I try to calculate the laplacian of a test function, given by \begin{align}\phi_0=\sin(2\pi x)\sin(2\pi y),\end{align} I get ...

### Are FDS scheme and ROE-FDS scheme the same?

In SU2 documentation about the numerical schemes (https://su2code.github.io/docs_v7/Convective-Schemes/) FDS is mentioned as a "standalone" method. Yet, when looking online for more ...

### How does the diffusion of a finite volume method with a WENO scheme compare with that of spectral methods?

I know that, in general, finite volume (FV) methods are more (numerically) diffusive than spectral methods. However, I can't find any information on how the advection scheme changes that. For example, ...
