 September 13, 2000, 00:05 Re: FDM. & FVM. #2 Istadi Guest   Posts: n/a It is any difference between FDM and FVM. In the FDM method, the differential terms are numerically approach directly by Taylor series, i.e. first order or second order. The second order have a good approximation with less error. In the FVM, the differential terms are firstly integrated analitically in the control volume between left face to right face. After that, the differential terms are numerically approximate by Taylor series or schemes , i.e. hybrid, power law, upwind differencing, etc, by applied conservation of mass and energy throughout control volume. In the FVM, it is more and more rule of law that we must obey to get stabil and real solution.

 September 14, 2000, 06:47 Re: FDM. & FVM. #6 Sebastien Perron Guest   Posts: n/a As far as I know, 1) The simple (Simpler, Simplec etc) method is not a numerical scheme (FVM, FDM FEM). It is an algorithm related to projection methods, these are used to solve incompressible flow. 2) But it is widely used in FVM codes to solve incompressible flow. (That is why when people say they use Simple or Simpler we often beleive it is in the context of FVM) 3) It is also used in some FEM codes to solve incompressible flow.

 September 15, 2000, 05:37 Re: FDM. & FVM. #7 Istadi Guest   Posts: n/a I agree with your opinion that SIMPLE or SIMPLER is not a numerical scheme. As far as I know that the numerical scheme are power law scheme (PLS), upwind difference scheme (UDS), hybrid scheme, etc.
