 June 16, 2005, 09:10 Re: TVD Schemes #3 andy Guest   Posts: n/a Why do you want second order accuracy at these points? As a rule-of-thumb, if you have not used sufficient grid resolution to resolve gradients you will usually get worse solutions with high order schemes compared to low order schemes. As another rule-of-thumb, what seems to work best in such regions are schemes which preserve relevant physical properties. Many schemes sacrifice one or more orders of accuracy (given the size of their computational molecule) even in resolved regions to gain better physical behaviour.

Near a sonic point, the problem is not the TVD scheme but the underlying numerical scheme (Roe's for example). If you are concerned about the amount of numerical dissipation of TVD schems try WENO or MP-WENO schemes.

Now I know it is not possible with TVD scheme, Infact today I read that it is impossible to have second order accuracy using TVD scheme in the book "Numerical Methods for Conservation Laws" by R. J. Levaque. Any futher suggetions? Thanks once again. regards Ritesh
