 February 20, 2002, 11:24 References for FVM #1 Anthony Wachs Guest   Posts: n/a Hi everybody, I recently tried to find some references about FVM and especially those that detail the derivation of the discretization schemes for general geometries. In the past I developed FVM numerical codes based on staggered grids and rectangular control volumes. Therefore, I feel like I know quite well the schemes derivation techniques for this special case. But now I would like to find out how the FVM is generalized to non-rectangular geometries (with non-rectangular quad and triangular control volumes) and non-staggered grid (i.e. colocated grid). How are the flux evaluated at the cell faces ? Comparisons between staggered and colocated strategies (when both can be considered) ? ... I already read the very well known book by Patankar and I recently purchased the book written by Versteeg and Malalasekera "An introduction to CFD : the Finite Volume Method". I was really disappointed since the latter (as the former) only deals with rectangular geometries and staggered grids. Thus, could someone advice me concerning a good reference explaining clearly the complete derivation of FVM schemes for non rectangular geometries (and controle volumes) and colocated grid ? Thanks in advance for your contribution Anthony

Look at the answer to a question regarding unstructured quad meshes (just search for "quad" in this forum). There I already gave a reference to a thesis for FV schemes on arbitrary grids. (all for compressible flow !) Frank

 February 20, 2002, 16:08 Re: References for FVM #5 Jongdae Kim Guest   Posts: n/a A kind of somewhat recently developed method(?). For simulation of complex/moving boundary problems using (fixed) Cartesian grids. Kim.

Lund, about Collocated Vs Staggered (To be submitted to J. Comp. Phys.) http://aero.uta.edu/~felten/resume/taicdl_art.ps sincerely, Frederic Felten.

Regards Li Yang

 February 20, 2002, 20:23 Re: References for FVM #9 Sebastien Perron Guest   Posts: n/a Based on the theoratical results presented in hanbooks of numerical analysis, volume 7, Finite Volume Methods (the authors are Eymard, Gallouet and Herbin, 2001). I developed a Finite Volume Scheme for unstructured grid with constant interpolations functions (this is not CVFEM, nor FVEM, nor discountinous Galerkin). If you are interested, I could give you a copy of a proceding, and If you can read french, a copy of my thesis.
