 June 13, 2008, 12:00 discretization in finite difference method #1 student Guest   Posts: n/a Dear Sir, I am solving 2d fluid flow problem using staggered grid (uniform grid with finite difference method), where pressure lies at the grid node and velocities lie at the flux node. We can discretize for the inner node d2p/dx2= (p[i+1]-2p[i]+p[i-1])/delx^2 but Near the boundary we have half control volume. I dont know how to discretize d2p/dx2 using finite difference method. please give some suggestions. thanking you.
