 December 4, 2003, 11:03 Central Difference Navier Stokes #1 Ben Guest   Posts: n/a Does anybody have any information on the stability criteria for the one dimensional Navier Stokes equations discretised with a second order central difference scheme without artificial dissipation? I realise that it's a non-linear stability problem, but are there any useful solutions apart from those gained through the model convection-diffusion equation?

(kg/m/s) dx=characteristic cell width For a given physical situation, if one is in violation of that criteria, then there's no choice but to reduce 'dx'. This will increase resource demands, however. Artificial dissipation is not a concern in general for 2nd order C.D. schemes; the main issue is balancing stability and resource constraints.
