Hi,

== 1 ==
Could someone please explain what the main difference of using "bounded" keyword result in?

Code:
divSchemes {
...
    div(phi,U)      bounded Gauss linearUpwind grad(U);
...
}
Code:
divSchemes {
...
    div(phi,U)      Gauss linearUpwind grad(U);
...
}
== 2 ==
In Table 4.10 of http://www.openfoam.org/docs/user/fvSchemes.php, it is stated that 'linearUpwind' is 'bounded'. Despite this, why do we need to add 'bounded' keyword to the scheme arguments?

==3==
Many thanks in advance.

My understanding based on the tutorial cases in OF 2.2.x, 'bounded' keyword is only added when the corresponding simulation is 'steadyState'.

Even if so, the main reason is absent for myself.

Good Question

As stated on the link:

Quote:
In particular, for steady-state it is necessary to use the bounded form, equivalent to fvm::div(phi, h) - fvm::Sp(fvc::div(phi), h). For transient solutions, it is usually better to implement only the fvm::div(phi, h) term.
I have few difficulties:
(1) From where this reference is taken?
(2) What if Source is zero? Then, what it is the significance of the "bounded" term?

Any better explanation for these with reference (in relation to papers or books)?
