 November 3, 1998, 10:54 second order FD upwind scheme #1 Heinz Wilkening Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Hi, I was ask by a friend, I had a hard time to answer, so I give the nswer to all of you. Is there a simple higher order upwind scheme for FD which* also works for non equidistant meshes? Thank you very much! Ciao Heinz

I am using SMART ( a kind of QUICK with limiters) and it works well. The good way to introduce it is using deferred correction (more robust, easy to converge). Here you have an interesting reference: Darwish M.S. and F. Mokalled (1996), The normalizad weighting factor method: a novel technique for accelerating the convergence od high-resolution convective schemes, Num. Heat Transfer B 30, 217-237 In the paper few high order numerical schemes are explained (also for non uniform grids). You can also find there a deferred correction vs direct introduction of the whole convection term.Even in the paper the authors showed that the direct way is better, I have bad experiences calculating benchmark cases (driven caviity, differentialy heated cavity), so I am using deferred correction. Hope this is enough, if not ask more. Alex
