Hi,
I was wondering if there is a major difference in the implementation of NVD and TVD schemes in OpenFOAM. Am I right in the assumption that the only real difference between NVD and TVD schemes in OpenFOAM is the limiters? Is it right that in OpenFOAM TVD schemes are actually nothing but special NVD schemes? I'm having a hard time grasping how convection schemes are implemented in OpenFOAM, but as far as I understand the code, both NVD and TVD should work identically up to the point where phict ( \Tilde{ phi_{C} } ) is being calculated. The reason why I'm asking this is that I'd like to know how the van Leer TVD (or is it NVD?) scheme works and effects the diagonal dominance of my matrix... Michi

Thank you for the nice summery, Santiago. Te lo agradezco mucho!
It seems that I was wrong and TVD schemes in OpenFOAM do calculate r and not phict as I thought before. Regards, Michi

I have a particular question about Van Leer limiter implementation in OpenFOAM 2.4.0.
I used it to limit my divergence term by the following excerpt in fvSchemes Code:
divSchemes { default Gauss linear; div(phi,U) Gauss vanLeerV 2; div(phi,nuTilda) Gauss limitedLinear 1; } Code:
(vanLeer.H) vanLeerLimiter(Istream&) {} scalar limiter ( const scalar, const scalar faceFlux, const typename LimiterFunc::phiType& phiP, const typename LimiterFunc::phiType& phiN, const typename LimiterFunc::gradPhiType& gradcP, const typename LimiterFunc::gradPhiType& gradcN, const vector& d ) const { scalar r = LimiterFunc::r ( faceFlux, phiP, phiN, gradcP, gradcN, d ); return (r + mag(r))/(1 + mag(r)); } Code:
(limtedLinear.H) limitedLinearLimiter(Istream& is) : k_(readScalar(is)) { if (k_ < 0  k_ > 1) { FatalIOErrorIn("limitedLinearLimiter(Istream& is)", is) << "coefficient = " << k_ << " should be >= 0 and <= 1" << exit(FatalIOError); } // Avoid the /0 when k_ = 0 twoByk_ = 2.0/max(k_, SMALL); } scalar limiter ( const scalar cdWeight, const scalar faceFlux, const typename LimiterFunc::phiType& phiP, const typename LimiterFunc::phiType& phiN, const typename LimiterFunc::gradPhiType& gradcP, const typename LimiterFunc::gradPhiType& gradcN, const vector& d ) const { scalar r = LimiterFunc::r ( faceFlux, phiP, phiN, gradcP, gradcN, d ); return max(min(twoByk_*r, 1), 0); } I am very confused now if van leer takes any argument and how do I specify it? Further, if I specify a strict bound, how can one choose such a number... it does not make sense to me that one could set an absolute bound before solving the system, otherwise why do you need the solver for...

Why are you trying to bound the U (velocity)? The use of bounded values with vanLeer is usually for scalars who have limited values, such as volume fraction that has to be between 0 and 1. For vectors, you are using vanLeerV, so I would guess that it makes no sense to prescribe a limiter such as 2, and for such reason it does nothing.
