Confused about how these variables are used1 Attachment(s)
Hello everybody,
I have downloaded a 2d simple euler fvm solver from http://code.google.com/p/cybo/. When I try to read the code, I come across some several variables qs1,qs2,fs,alpha,dfs, and can't figure out their meanings. Is alpha a factor of diffusion? The paper wrote by the author is not so clear, and he don't reply my email. I hope you can explain to me in more detailed way. Here is part of the program that I got confused. The following attachment is a zip package of the code. The relevant paper by the author is too large and you can download it from http://code.google.com/p/cybo/downlo...o.pdf&can=2&q= SUBROUTINE get_flux(flux) USE euler USE mesh USE inputs, ONLY: gamma,mach IMPLICIT NONE DOUBLE PRECISION, DIMENSION(4,numpts), INTENT(INOUT) :: flux DOUBLE PRECISION, DIMENSION(numpts) :: div DOUBLE PRECISION, DIMENSION(4) :: fs,dfs,norm INTEGER :: i,n1,n2,t1,t2 INTEGER :: bc,e DOUBLE PRECISION :: dx,dy,qs1,qs2,alpha,c1,c2,len,u1,u2,v1,v2 !!
