It's well known that finite volume has two classes. One is cell centered, and the other is cell vertex. I don't known which is better and why?

All comments are welcomed!

Hi there,

A very good discussion about Cell-vertex and Cell-centered is available in chapter 3 of the following reference: "Principles of Computational Fluid Dynamics", P. Wesseling, Springer-Verlag, 2000. ISBN: 3540678530

I hope this helps, sincerely,

Frederic Felten.

Hi peter,

I am currrently travelling and so I don't have the book with me, but be sure that I'll provide you with some insight as soon as I have time.

In the mean time, you could email Dr. Wesseling and ask him directly about some info about cell-vertex Vs cell-centered.

Sincerely,

Frederic Felten.
