Conservation properties of the mass, momentum, and kinetic energy equations for incompressible flow are specified as analytical requirements for a proper set of discrete equations. Existing finite difference schemes in regular and staggered grid systems are checked for violations of the conservation requirements and a few important discrepancies are pointed out. In particular, it is found that none of the existing higher order schemes for a staggered mesh system simultaneously conserve mass… 

A Fully Conservative Second-Order Finite Difference Scheme for Incompressible Flow on Nonuniform Grids

A second-order-accurate finite difference discretization of the incompressible Navier?Stokes is presented that discretely conserves mass, momentum, and kinetic energy (in the inviscid limit) in space

High Order Finite Difference Schemes on Non-uniform Meshes with Good Conservation Properties

The objective of this work is to generalize the high order schemes of Morinishi et al. to non-uniform meshes while maintaining conservation properties of the schemes as much as possible, by preserving symmetries of the uniform mesh case.

Conservative High-Order Finite-Difference Schemes for Low-Mach Number Flows

Three finite-difference algorithms are proposed to solve a low-Mach number approximation for the Navier?Stokes equations. These algorithms exhibit fourth-order spatial and second-order temporal

On the construction of high order nite dierence schemes on non-uniform meshes with good conservation properties

Numerical simulation of turbulent flows (DNS or LES) requires numerical methods that are both stable and free of numerical dissipation. One way to achieve this is to enforce additional constraints,

A dynamic subgrid‐scale eddy viscosity model

One major drawback of the eddy viscosity subgrid‐scale stress models used in large‐eddy simulations is their inability to represent correctly with a single universal constant different turbulent
