## Goals of this section

Here we shall develop a commone definitions and regulations because of

- in different issues was used different definitions and notations
- we are searching for common approach and generalisation

## Usual using definition for convected variable

## definition of considered face, upon wich approximation is applied

usually (in the most articles) west face of the control volume is considered (*without loss of generality*)

for which **flux is directed from the left to the right**

we shall define it as

and convected variable at face of CV as

also you can find in literature such definition as , but we suggested it non suitable, because of complication

## indicators of the local velocity direction

approximation scheme can be written in the next form

| (1) |

where and are the indicators of the local velocity direction such that

| (1) |

| (1) |

and of course

| (1) |

also used such definitions as and

we offer to use

and

therefore unnormalised form of approximation scheme can be written

| (1) |

or in more general form

| (1) |

## definitions for NV diagram

we discoverd such definitions as

is a function of
