 April 25, 2004, 23:30 stability of SIMPLE? #1 noName Guest   Posts: n/a I am trying to write my own SIMPLEC based code for solving a general 2-D flow problem on a rectangular domain. When solving for velocities from the guessed pressure using the momentum equations, I need to invert a matrix that is tri-diagonal. How I can I be assured that the matrix is strictly diagonally dominant? How can I be assured that my differencing is numerically stable? Very often I get large oscillations in my solution (mostly, when convection is much larger than diffusion). Is there some good book that describes the numerical theory of Navier Stokes? I have been reading Patankar and Malalasekara.

If the estimation values are equal at all points then your scheme is numericaly stable (you must prove this for both stationary and non - stationary cases). If there are any variations in this value then you have some additional approximation error (like scheme viscosity) due to the approximation scheme - not to the mechanical equations, there are some methods that can correct this.

"Numerical computation of internal and external flows, Volume 1: Fundamentals of numerical discretisation, Volume 2: Computational methods for inviscid and viscous flows", John Willey & Sons, 1990 This is one of the best references for CFD numerics.
