 January 20, 2010, 15:10 water hammer solution by finite volume method #1 New Member   Amin Join Date: Jan 2010 Posts: 1 Rep Power: 0 hi, I studied about water hammer modeling by finite volume method, so i wrote a FORTRAN 90 code to this model, where the model include : fifth- order Rung-Kutta time discretization , and Roe(scheme) for convective fluxes terms, now i have problem to compelete my model, so I hope to earn my questions reply here, my problems: 1- how i apply dual time stepping in this model? 2- convergence of model? I am glad to solve my problems. Th.U

If that is the case, you can simulate the same problem in successively refined grids, and compare the order of convergence as Order = log(e1/e2) / log(h1/h2) where e is the error, and h is the equivalent 1D grid spacing. You can refer the website below for grid convergence: http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/wind/val.../spatconv.html
