 July 12, 2010, 11:36 LDG viscous flux discretization procedure #1 New Member   sonali Join Date: Jul 2010 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 8 Can anyone comment on the efficacy of LDG viscous flux schemes for high order methods like DG, spectral volume or the spectral difference methods. I have read about it and it looks very simple and elegant in contrast to other formulations like the penalty formulation etc. However, has anyone experienced any undesirable features (due to its lack of symmetry) , while using LDG?

 July 13, 2010, 11:40 some discussions on LDG #2 New Member   yughi Join Date: Jul 2010 Posts: 1 Rep Power: 0 Hi Sonali, well, LDG is great with respect to its simplicity, easy to use approach and lack of a length scale (which is really something worth mentioning for heavily skewed and non-uniform grids). Thus it has been used in several areas of engineering (not just confined to aerodynamics) [2]. However it has been shown by Kannan and Wang [1] to be very dissipative, when compared to the penalty and the BR2 formulations. This paper, describes the process using a very clean eigen value analysis. Very recently Kannan and Wang[3] came up with a variant of LDG : called LDG2. This is more symmetrical than LDG, but still has the advantages of LDG( like simplicity, lack of a length scale etc). This was shown to have more accuracy than the LDG. 1. R. Kannan and Z.J.
