 February 1, 2009, 22:01 convergence of DG for Euler equations #1 Shyam Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am developing a CFD code for unstructured grids based on spectral and DG methods. I used linear advection and Burger's eqn to get the order of convergence of the code. The scheme performed pretty good. But, when I use the same for Euler code, I am not able to get the designed order of error convergence. I used the advection of isentropic vortex for testing the Euler code. For the flux, I used HLL fluxes. Can anyone let me know what fluxes are recommended for the DG schemes of order > 3? Also, in the HLL flux, the normal flux is something like F_HLL = (SR*FL - SL*FR + SL*SR*(qR-qL))/(SR-SL) I have used the fluxes FL and FR as the normal fluxes and qL and qR to be the original state variables (not transformed to normal coordinates). If I am wrong in this, please correct me. Thanks, Shyam

When I chose the initial condition to be rho = 1 + 0.2 * sin(PI*(x+y)), u=0.7, v=0.2, p=1 the code produced the expected results. Still wondering why it struggles for advection of isentropic vortex.
