A Mixed Finite Volume Method for Elliptic Problems

Abstract

We derive a novel finite volume method for the elliptic equation, using the framework of mixed finite element methods to discretize the pressure and velocities on two different grids (covolumes), triangular (tetrahedral) mesh and control volume mesh. The new discretization is defined for tensor diffusion coefficient and well suited for heterogeneous media… (More)
