 August 29, 2006, 01:17 Re: spectral volumes #2 Deepak Guest   Posts: n/a Dear prapanj, Its an advanced topic for a beginner of CFD.. to start with,its an advancement of Finite volume method,which differs from the conventional method in the reconstruction of polynomials (initial step) to solve the Hyperbloic conservation laws...(Euler equations,compressible flows)..u can find a lot of litereature and explanation in Dr. Wang's homepage...(Asst prof,Dept of Aerospace,Iowa state university) http://www.public.iastate.edu/~zjw/ i dont thk it ll be suitable to do as an undergraduate project..(my view..spl if u r a beginner).. iam also interested in spectral volume methods..it ll be a great help,if anyone can discuss abt its limitations.. thanks and with regards, Deepak Thirumurthy

Deepak Thirumurthy..
