 October 15, 2008, 10:48 Hi Stephan, Linear takes into #2 Member   diablo80@web.de Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 93 Rep Power: 10 Hi Stephan, Linear takes into account the distances between cell centers and faces. The weight attributed to each adjacent center is inversely proportional to the distance to the face. Midpoint weights equally the two adjacent values (as 0.5*PhiA + 0.5*PhiB).

(i guess the first two should be fixed by the value at the cell centres) regards stephan
