# Fully Conservative Higher Order Finite Difference Schemes for Incompressible Flow

@article{Morinishi1998FullyCH, title={Fully Conservative Higher Order Finite Difference Schemes for Incompressible Flow}, author={Youhei Morinishi and Thomas S. Lund and Oleg V. Vasilyev and Parviz Moin}, journal={Journal of Computational Physics}, year={1998}, volume={143}, pages={90-124} }

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…
