cubic and limitedCubic scheme reference
Hi all,
I was wondering if there are some references about the cubic/limitedCubic interpolation scheme implemented in OpenFOAM. I guess that the cubic scheme should be a centered fourth order scheme, but what about the limited one? What kind of limter/boundedness criterion is used? Is the same TVD limiter (Sweby limiter) used also for the limitedLinear scheme?
Any additional info about this matter will be appreciated

Well, I think I've found the answer myself: the scheme is indeed the centered fourth order differencing and the limited one uses a TVD limiter which should be the same as used in the limtedLinear scheme.
