finite volume solver problem
I am developing a uniform compressible finite volume solver,
Runs ok when using a cell size of 2.0 but somethings going wrong when I reduce the cell size to 0.1 units. I think the CFL & timestep specification is ok but I think its related to the update of the Q vector: RHS = dE/dx + dF/dy + dG/dz Q(n+1) = Q(n) + RHS*dt/vol, where dt = timestep and vol = cell volume Is this correct ? Have I missed something obvious ? Thanks.

If V is your Volume, then the equation writes: d/dt [Integral_V Q dV] + Integral_V Div Flux dV = 0 Therefore: d/dt [Q_average] + (1/vol) Integral_V Div Flux dV = 0 Hence, your RHS must be vol*(dE/dx + dF/dy + dG/dz) 
thanks very much FMD !
