Viscous Flux Jacobian
Who has the experience computing viscous flux Jacobian for incompressible flow?
Suppose we set the primitive variables as [P, U, V, W]. I know hand calculating the convective flux Jacobian analytically is easy. But for viscous flux, the situation looks different. My own hand derivation shows that it should be zero for Cartesian grid. It may not be zero in the case of curvilinear grid. Am I correct? Thank you. 
The viscous flux Jacobians are not zero for a Cartesian grid.

But are you sure? I mean incompressible flow with constant viscosity here. suppose in 2D case with kinematic viscosity as miu primitive variable: Q=[ P, U, V ], convective flux in X: E=[ U, U*U+P, UV ] viscous flux in X: Ev=[ 0, 2*miu*ddU/ddX, miu*(ddU/ddY+ddV/ddX) ] When I do the viscous flux Jacobian analytically: dd(Ev)/ddQ, all derivatives of Ev elements in terms of P,U or V get nothing. And someone also remind me the viscous terms are linear for incompressible NS eq. 
I am assuming you are trying to develop an implicit algorithm. Since the viscous terms are linear, if you write Q(N+1) = Q(N) + DQ and substitute into the diff. eq., the terms containing the DQ can be carried to the lefthand side. The flux Jacobian (or the contribution to the system matrix) follow from that. In this case it will be mu multiplied by the coefficients of the difference terms.

Yes, if we use a Jacobianfree NewtonKrylov method, your idea will be implemented easily. But I think if we can cancel it out analytically, then we don't have to compute it numerically and save some effort. The original 2D eq is: ddQ/ddt+dd(EEv)/ddX+dd(FFv)/ddY=0 (no source term) The 3x3 Jacobian matrix often acts as a coefficient in system matrix. My opinion is that all elements in viscous flux Jacobian matrix are zero if no coordinate transform is involved. 
You can ignore them, but the advantage of including them is that they contribute to the diagonal dominance of the coefficient matrix.

This paper maybe is useful for you
For compressible flow, the below paper maybe is useful.
"Implicit multigrid solution of the compressible NavierStokes equations with application to distributed parallel processing", Tysinger, Thomas Lee, Ph.D. Thesis Cornell Univ., Ithaca, NY,1992. This paper introduced the viscous jacobian matrix for compressible NS equation. I think this method is also useful for your problem. 
not zero

viscous flux in X: Ev=[ 0, 2*miu*ddU/ddX, miu*(ddU/ddY+ddV/ddX) ] When I do the viscous flux Jacobian analytically: dd(Ev)/ddQ, all derivatives of Ev elements in terms of P,U or V get nothing. You get something. For example, dd(Ev)/ddU = [0, 2*miu*dd/ddX, miu*dd/ddY ] A discretized version would be dd(Ev)/ddU = [0, 2*miu*(1/Delta x), miu*(1/Delta y) ] gory

viscous jacobian for compressible flow appears in many CFD books. But that's an easier and completely different case. For incompressible flow we don't have density as a primitive variable. [QUOTE=gory;249527] Quote:

It's what you'll get if you follow the steps I outlined above  it results from the linear nature of the PDE and the linearization of the aforementioned viscous terms.

I don't know any reference. I agree with agd that you follow his instruction and you'll get it. Example: Consider a simple diffusion equation, ut = df/dx, where f = du/dx (d = \partial, i.e., one partial). Then, ut = A du/dx, where A=df/du=d(du/dx)/du=d/dx. It is an operator. If you're interested in the Jacobian (I'm not sure if you are) of the residual. It's related but a bit different, I think. I guess it goes like this: A discretized version of df/dx may be RHS(j) =(u_{j+1}  2 u_j + u_{j1})/(Delta x)^2, where RHSis a residual vector and RHS(j) is the jth component. The Jacobian is a matrix defined as dRHS/dU where U = [u1, u2, u_{j1}, u_j, ...], i.e., the discrete values. So, for example, (dRHS/U)(j,j) = dRHS(j)/du_j = 2 / (Delta x)^2 (dRHS/U)(j,j1) = dRHS(j)/du_{j1}= 1/(Delta x)^2 and so on. In any case, the Jacobian is not zero for viscous terms, I think. gory
