 August 4, 2006, 09:09 Does anyone happen to know if #1 jelmer Guest   Posts: n/a Does anyone happen to know if there is second order version available of the downwind scheme? I would like to apply a second order scheme for the convection in the adjoint Euler equations. So far I could only find (and use succesfully) the first order downwind scheme, other schemes seem useless. There is nothing on downwind schemes in the manual either. I tried to use schemes for vector fields in order to upwind according to the adjoint characteristic direction which is opposite to the physical characteristic direction, but this wasn't a cure either. regards, jlmr

 August 7, 2006, 08:26 Thank you Hrv for explaining.. #4 jelmer Guest   Posts: n/a Thank you Hrv for explaining... So, nobody knows either who has implemented the downwind scheme so I can contact him or her? Then my other question is: would copying and modifying (for instance) the MUSCL scheme from upwind to downwind be a smart and easy way to write a higher order downwind scheme myself...? jlmr

 August 9, 2006, 06:43 found it! simply add '2': G #5 jelmer Guest   Posts: n/a found it! simply add '2': Gauss downwind 2; does the trick. Nice second order accurate solution! jlmr mm.abdollahzadeh likes this.
