A New Scheme for Solving High-Order DG Discretizations of Thermal Radiative Transfer using the Variable Eddington Factor Method

A new approach for solving high-order thermal radiative transfer (TRT) using the Variable Eddington Factor (VEF) method, which leverages the VEF equations to more efficiently compute the TRT solution for each time step.

High-Order Mixed Finite Element Variable Eddington Factor Methods

Numerical results are presented that demonstrate high-order accuracy, compatibility with curved meshes, and robust and efficient convergence in iteratively solving the coupled transport-VEF system and in the preconditioned linear solvers used to invert the discretized VEF equations.

A Family of Independent Variable Eddington Factor Methods with Efficient Linear Solvers

Numerical results demonstrate that the VEF discretizations have arbitrary-order accuracy on curved meshes, preserve the thick diffusion limit, and are effective on a proxy problem from thermal radiative transfer in both outer transport iterations and inner preconditioned linear solver iterations.

The quality and time to produce machine learned models for use in small molecule antiviral design were improved and the time reduced.

The Newton-Krylov Method Applied to Negative-Flux Fixup in SN Transport Calculations

Newton’s method is used to solve fixed-source SN transport problems with negative-flux fixup, for which the analytic form of the Jacobian is shown to be nonsingular, demonstrating that Newton-Krylov can outperform SI, particularly for diffusive materials.

Nonnegative Methods for Bilinear Discontinuous Differencing of the SN Equations on Quadrilaterals

A strictly nonnegative, nonlinear, Petrov-Galerkin finite element method that fully preserves the bilinear discontinuous spatial moments of the transport equation and is a more accurate solution than all the other methods considered.

Diffusion Synthetic Acceleration for High-Order Discontinuous Finite Element SN Transport Schemes and Application to Locally Refined Unstructured Meshes

Out of the three DSA schemes derived, the modified interior penalty (MIP) scheme is stable and effective for realistic problems, even with distorted elements, but loses effectiveness for some highly heterogeneous configurations.

This paper presents a general framework for high-order Lagrangian discretization of these compressible shock hydrodynamics equations using curvilinear finite elements for any finite dimensional approximation of the kinematic and thermodynamic fields.

High-Order Multi-Material ALE Hydrodynamics

A new approach for multi-material arbitrary Lagrangian--Eulerian (ALE) hydrodynamics simulations based on high-order finite elements posed onhigh-order curvilinear meshes, which depends critically on a functional perspective that enables subzonal physics and material modeling.

High Order Positivity-Preserving Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for Radiative Transfer Equations

arbitrarily high order accurate DG schemes are constructed which preserve positivity of the radiative intensity in the simulation of both steady and unsteady radiative transfer equations in one- and two-dimensional geometry by using a combined technique of the scaling positivi...

DSA Preconditioning for DG discretizations of $S_{N}$ transport and High-Order curved meshes

It is proved that performing two additional transport sweeps in between DSA steps yields the same theoretical conditioning of fixed-point iterations as in the cycle-free case, and also that the SIP DSA matrix is difficult to invert for small $\varepsilon$.

Lumping Techniques for DFEM SN Transport in Slab Geometry

Abstract We examine several mass matrix lumping techniques for the discrete ordinates (SN) particle transport equations spatially discretized with arbitrary order discontinuous finite elements in
