 November 28, 2003, 23:07 FVM-higher order scheme #1 K S Chang Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links In the code with finite volume method, we want to upgrade the discretization oreder of convective term. Now the schemes in the present code are hybrid and QUICK. What is the higher order scheme than these ? If there is the reference, let me know. Thank you~

However, for convection problems, this is unlikely to be a problem at low speeds. Also, TVD schemes use for convection tend to give a very smooth solution instantaneously. TVD schemes include Van Leer (dissipative) and Superbee (compressive) as well as many others. ENO schemes can also be used. Look for papers by Shu and Osher. I think that these ENO schemes are usually only used for scalar convection not the momentum equations.

I have been reading a paper by Tamamidis and Assanis (Numerical Heat Transfer B, Vol. 24, No. 1) that describes a fifth-order upwind scheme. The face value is given by Uf = (-6Ui-2 + 540Ui-1 + 94Ui+1 - 26Ui+2 + 4Ui+3)/120 and they use QUICK near bundaries.
