I am not sure I post this massage on the right place. If not, I apologize for it.
I try to implement Gamma in my code in deferred correction mode. I did not see much improvement of my code. Is there something wrong?
Acoording to Hrvoje's theis, Gamma's big virtue is that it dose not require defferred correction due to its compact computational molecule.
So Openfoam should implicitly introduce Gamma? what's openfoam's treatment? I would appreciate your hints.
At current stage, OpenFoam is a very big challege for me as I know nothing about C++. Hence I still work on my own code. But my final taget is OpenFoam

Yes, this is where I did all my work on the Gamma differencing scheme in the first place. What you do is as follows:

- imagine your scheme as a blend between upwind and central differencing
- look at the paper to find out how to calculate the blending factor from the currect solution for each face (using cell and face gradients)
- ... and now you're free to do whatever you wish.

OpenFOAM implements my scheme directly, i.e. it comes up with interpolation factors that use the blending between upwind and central.

Star-CD used to do it in a deferred correction mode, but I was never to happy with it - deferred correction distorts temporal accuracy. For Mickey Mouse cases, there's no much difference in any case. If you are interested in validation of the numerics rather than chasing LES and similar (sensitive) physics, you'll be all right any way.

Thanks for Dr.Hrv's answer. In your thesis, you talked a lot about discretised methods for diffusion term. there methods based on the decomposition of surface vector are investigated. Something bother me is that what's the difference between these methods with the one given by Ferziger and Peric in computational methods for fluid dynamics. If any difference, I would appreciate your comments. My code was developed via Ferziger and Peric's text book. Now it seems I need a professional advice. Sorry this topic is not about OpenFoam.Thanks in advance.
