The last 20 years have seen a wide variety of high-resolution methods that can compute sharp, oscillation-free compressible flows. Here, we combine a complementary set of these methods together in a nonlinear (hybridized) fashion. Our base method is built on a monotone high-resolution Godunov method, the piece-wise parabolic method (PPM). PPM is combined(More)
Validation is often defined as the process of determining the degree to which a model is an accurate representation of the real world from the perspective of its intended uses. Validation is crucial as industries and governments depend increasingly on predictions by computer models to justify their decisions. We propose to formulate the validation of a(More)

Abstract. Despite decades of development, Lagrangian hydrodynamics of strengthfree materials presents numerous open issues, even in one dimension. We focus on the problem of closing a system of equations for a two-material cell under the assumption of a single velocity model. There are several existing models and approaches, each possessing different levels(More)

Directly burnable biomass to be used primarily in steam boilers for power production has been researched and demonstrated in a variety of projects in the United states. The biomass typically comes from wood wastes, such as tree trimmings or the byproducts of lumber production, or from a cash crop, grown by farmers. Of this latter group, the main emphasis(More)
