A low diffusive flux difference splitting based kinetic scheme is developed based on a discrete velocity Boltzmann equation, with a novel three velocity model. While two discrete velocities are used for upwinding, the third discrete velocity is utilized to introduce appropriate additional numerical diffusion only in the expansion regions, identified using relative entropy (Kullback-Liebler divergence) at the cell-interface, along with the estimation of physical entropy. This strategy provides an… 



Discrete Velocity Boltzmann Schemes for Inviscid Compressible Flows

Flux-vector splitting for the Euler equations

When approximating a hyperbolic system of conservation laws w t + {f(w)} t = 0 with so-called upwind differences, one must determine in which direction each of a variety of signals moves through the computational grid.


Kinetic‐Theoretic Description of the Formation of a Shock Wave

The flow of a gas in a shock tube is treated in the context of kinetic theory as an initial value problem for the one‐dimensional Krook equation. The only simplifying assumption made is that the gas

Numerical hydrodynamics from gas-kinetic theory

A new high-resolution numerical hydrodynamic scheme is developed from considerations of gas-kinetic theory. This Boltzmann-type scheme uses the particle distribution function, and follows its

A second-order accurate kinetic-theory-based method for inviscid compressible flows

An upwind method for the numerical solution of the Euler equations is presented. This method, called the kinetic numerical method (KNM), is based on the fact that the Euler equations are moments of

A Contribution to the Great Riemann Solver Debate

The aims of this paper are threefold: to increase the level of awareness within the shock-capturing community of the fact that many Godunov-type methods contain subtle flaws that can cause spurious
