Hello
I want to discretise one term of non fourier heat transfer equation with volume control method. I try to do it, but i cant.
this term is: d2(cp u T)/(dt dx)
that we have cp(T),u(x,y,t),T(x,y,t)
T:temperate
t:time
thank you

I have some doubt about your symbolism, you are referring to as a first time derivative or a second mixed x,t derivative....?

sorry, d2(cp u T)/(dt dx)

I never worked on such model, what about the mathematical classification of this equation?

It is a hyperbolic heat transfer equation. It should be discretised base on versteegَ s book(An introduction to computational fluid dynamics) and with volume control method.

Your question is not clear to me... to the best of my knowledge, a term like d2T/dxdt never appears in the original heat equation....
hybrid time-space derivatives usually appears when you use some time-integration method of the class of the Lax-Wendroff. But in such cases, the original equation is substituted into the derivative.

I want to write a computer program to solve my equation that one of the itُs terms is d2(cp u T)/(dtdx). Now i want to approximate this term base on my method that i said.
This term is very small, since it has a very small fixed coefficient. This coefficient shows the speed of heat propagation is not infinite.

Again, the real problem is not in the discretization of a single term (is quite simple to do on a time-space grid) but care in the discretization of the model equation is required.
You said it is hyperbolic, therefore the discretization of the whole model must be stable and accurate, but if the equation is also non-linear other requirements can be necessary.

Yes, you are right, but the most important of my problem is the discretization of this term. May you send me your email to give whole of my equation.
