The accuracy of numerical simulation algorithms is one of main concerns in modern Computational Fluid Dynamics. Development of new and more accurate mathematical models requires an insight into the problem of numerical errors. In order to construct an estimate of the solution error in Finite Volume calculations, it is first necessary to examine its sources. Discretisation errors can be divided into two groups: errors caused by the discretisation of the solution domain and equation…

A-posteriori error estimation using higher moments in computational fluid dynamics
In industrial situations time is expensive and simulation accuracy is not always investigated because it requires grid refinement studies or other time consuming methods. With this in mind the goal
A critical analysis of some popular methods for the discretisation of the gradient operator in finite volume methods
TLDR
Results reveal that the zeroth-order accuracy of the DT gradient is inherited by the FVM as a whole, and the discretisation error does not decrease with grid refinement, as well as the use of alternative, consistent, DT gradient schemes, including a new iterative scheme that makes the common DT gradient consistent at almost no extra cost.
Extension of the Local Problem Error Estimate to the Finite Volume Discretisation
Out of the wide range of a-posteriori error estimates for the Finite Element Method (FEM) of discretisation, the group of estimates based on the element residual seems to be the most popular. One
