3D Tollmien-Schlichting Waves Imposed in a Channel Flow (Are Physics correct?, etc)

So I am trying to do some further tests on a 2nd-order code Incompressible Navier Stokes equations, by studying transition to turbulence in a Poiseuille flow. Specifically, I'm interested to see ...

When is it safe to ignore the diffusion term in an advection-diffusion equation?

Given the one dimensional equation: $\epsilon\frac{\partial^2u}{\partial x^2} +\frac{\partial u}{\partial x} = 0 $ with $0\le\epsilon \ll1$ with boundary conditions $u(0) = 0$ and $u(1) = 2$, we ...

discrete versions of Lp norm

The discrete analogue of the $L_p$ norm for the mesh function $V$ is $$\|V\|_{l^p(\bar{\Omega}^N)}=\left(\sum_{i=0}^NV_i^p\bar{h}_i\right)^{1/p}$$ where $\bar{\Omega}^N$ is an arbitrary mesh, $\bar{h}...

Oscillations in singularly perturbed reaction-diffusion problems with finite elements

When FEM-discretizing and solving a reaction-diffusion problem, e.g., $$ - \varepsilon \Delta u + u = 1 \text{ on } \Omega\\ u = 0 \text{ on } \partial\Omega $$ with $0 < \varepsilon \ll 1$ (...
