Default upwind scheme
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

I am runing the symmetric and upwind TVD schemes at Mach < 3. In papers I've read(Yee, Harten), the Mach number can be hypersonic. However my code keeps blowing up at Ma > 5. The numerical method is the same for high and low Mach flows so I am unsure as to why it doesn't work. Is it to do with CFL?
