Fully discrete high resolution schemes for systems of conservation laws
Effective and robust high resolution schemes are of vital importance for simulation of viscous and inviscid flows. Since second-order high resolution schemes in practice are inadquate for many applications, large efforts have been put towards developing higher- order accurate schemes in the past. Although some progress has been made, the efforts were frustrated by the lack of effective and robust new schemes. Therefore this thesis is aimed at challenging this difficult but very important issue. Some new theories and methodologies were established during this research, which covers the linear stability analysis for high-order numerical schemes; the fully discrete techniques for model equations; the formulation of conservative high-order schemes and the high-order Total Variation Diminishing (TVD) schemes. According to these theories arbitrary-order high resolution schemes can be developed. To illustrate the methodologies second-, third-, fourth-, and 20th-order schemes are presented. These high resolution schemes were tested and validated by solving some popular test problems for one and two dimensional Euler and incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. The efficiency and robustness are the features of these high-order schemes.
