 May 15, 2006, 05:51 Cell face values computation un unstructured grids #1 Sergio Rossi Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, on arbitrary unstructured grids the computation on cell face values can be complicated, expecially when using local grid refinement. CFD-Wiki page "Gradient Computation" describes two approaches, but the first ("cell-based methods") is only first order or arbitrary grids, and for the second one, it is not clear how to estimate accuracy. Another possibility is mentioned in Ferziger and Peric, and it involves auxiliary nodes and gradients at cell centers. But in order to calculate the gradient at cell centers, cell face values are needed (at least when using Gauss theorem: see again page "Gradient Computation"), which sends us in a logical loop. Anyone knows of methods for cell face values computation, which are second order accurate on arbitrary grids? Thanks, Sergio PS thanks to the authors of CFD-Wiki, it is a very useful resource.
