numerical dissipation
Dear All,

I know nothing about numerical dissipation. Could someone recommend some good references for the beginner like me? Thank you very much.

Re: numerical dissipation
Hi zwdi, You can read something about numerical dissipation of finite volume schemes in "Numerical Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow", S.V. Patankar.

Best regards, Jeremie.

Re: numerical dissipation
Thank you very much, Jeremie.

I read that book you mentioned before. Now it is not at my hand. I could not remember some conception about numerical dissipation in that book. Is numerical dissipation the caused error due to discretization? such as numerical diffusion due to UDS? I will read that book again. Thanks.
