The stiffness of the source terms in modeling non-equilibrium flow problems containing finite-rate chemistry or combustion poses additional numerical difficulties beyond that for solving non-reacting flows. A well-balanced scheme, which can preserve certain non-trivial steady state solutions exactly, may help minimize some of these difficulties. In this(More)
In this paper, we develop a multiscale local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) method to simulate the one-dimensional stationary Schrödinger-Poisson problem. The stationary Schrödinger equation is discretized by the WKB local discontinuous Galerkin (WKB-LDG) method, and the Poisson potential equation is discretized by the minimal dissi-pation LDG (MD-LDG)(More)
The goal of this paper is to generalize the well-balanced approach for non-equilibrium flow studied by Wang et al. [29] to a class of low dissipative high-order shock-capturing filter schemes and to explore more advantages of well-balanced schemes in reacting flows. More general 1D and 2D reacting flow models and new examples of shock turbulence(More)
A new high order finite-difference method utilizing the idea of Harten ENO subcell resolution method is proposed for chemical reactive flows and combustion. In reaction problems, when the reaction time scale is very small, e.g., orders of magnitude smaller than the fluid dynamics time scales, the governing equations will become very stiff. Wrong propagation(More)
We present a multiscale model for numerical simulation of dynamics of crystalline solids. The method couples nonlinear elastodynamics as the continuum description and molecular dynamics as another component at the atomic scale. The governing equations on the macroscale are solved by the discontinuous Galerkin method, which is built up with an appropriate(More)
