We propose a robust pressure-correction scheme for the numerical solution of the compressible Euler equations discretized by a collocated finite volume method. The scheme is based on an internal energy formulation, which ensures that the internal energy is positive. More generally, the scheme enjoys fundamental stability properties: without restriction on the time step, both the density and the internal energy are positive, the integral of the total energy over the computational domain is…

Consistent Internal Energy Based Schemes for the Compressible Euler Equations

Numerical schemes for the solution of the Euler equations have recently been developed, which involve the discretisation of the internal energy equation, with corrective terms to ensure the correct

Staggered Residual Distribution scheme for compressible flow

It is concluded that the approximation of the Euler equation of compressible fluid dynamics on a staggered mesh is general and can be used in a different setting as the specific one used here, for example finite volume, of discontinuous Galerkin methods.

Conservativity And Weak Consistency Of A Class Of Staggered Finite Volume Methods For The Euler Equations

The aim of the present paper is to derive a local total energy equation satisfied by the solutions, so that the schemes are in fact conservative, and to prove that they are consistent in the Lax-Wendroff sense.



An unconditionally stable staggered pressure correction scheme for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations

In this paper we present a pressure correction scheme for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations. The space discretization is staggered, using either the Marker-And Cell (MAC) scheme for structured

A convergent staggered scheme for the variable density incompressible Navier-Stokes equations

This paper shows that any sequence of solutions converges up to the extraction of a subsequence to a weak solution of the continuous problem, and proves the existence of a solution by invoking compactness arguments.

Entropy estimates for a class of schemes for the euler equations

In this paper, we derive entropy estimates for a class of schemes for the Euler equations which present the following features: they are based on the internal energy equation (eventually with a

On some implicit and semi-implicit staggered schemes for the shallow water and Euler equations

In this paper, we propose implicit and semi-implicit in time finite volume schemes for the barotropic Euler equations (hence, as a particular case, for the shallow water equations) and for the full

A hybrid scheme to compute contact discontinuities in one-dimensional Euler systems

A blend scheme is eventually proposed to benefit from both properties (“perfect” representation of contact discontinuities on coarse meshes, and correct convergence on finer meshes) and Computational results based on an approximate Godunov scheme are provided and discussed.

A discretization of the phase mass balance in fractional step algorithms for the drift-flux model

We address in this paper a parabolic equation used to model the phase mass balance in two-phase flows, which differs from the mass balance for chemical species in compressible multicomponent flows by
