Central Difference vs Upwind Defference
 
Can any one suggest me some review papers or debates on Central Difference Schemes vs Upwind Difference schemes?

Please see Numerical heat transfer and fluid flow, SV Patankar.

See the book: Computational methods for fluid dynamics of Ferziger & Peric. Springer-Verlag.

As mentioned by Vaidya, "Numerical heat tranfer and fluid flow", SV Patankar, is a really useful reference, that provides an easy-to-understand explanation concerning the difference between central and upwind schemes

I see, everyone has different experiences and therefore recommendations for the literature. The above books are classic. On myself I recommend the book " an introduction in computational fluid dynamics. The finite volume method" by Versteeg and Malalasekera. Because in this books the different schemes (central difference, upwind, hybrid, quick) are presented and explained in detail on an example and it's easy to read.

Best Regards

Uwe

The book"Computational fluid flow and heat transfer" by S.Muralithar and T.Sundararajan,Narosa Publishers,New Delhi, can be referred to.
