Optimal control using flux potentials: A way to construct bound-preserving finite element schemes for conservation laws

  title={Optimal control using flux potentials: A way to construct bound-preserving finite element schemes for conservation laws},
  author={Falko Ruppenthal and Dmitri Kuzmin},
To ensure preservation of local or global bounds for numerical solutions of conservation laws, we constrain a baseline finite element discretization using optimization-based (OB) flux correction. The main novelty of the proposed methodology lies in the use of flux potentials as control variables and targets of inequality-constrained optimization problems for numerical fluxes. In contrast to optimal control via general source terms, the discrete conservation property of flux-corrected finite…

Bound-preserving flux limiting schemes for DG discretizations of conservation laws with applications to the Cahn–Hilliard equation
Abstract Many mathematical models of computational fluid dynamics involve transport of conserved quantities, which must lie in a certain range to be physically meaningful. The analytical or numerical

Monolithic convex limiting for continuous finite element discretizations of hyperbolic conservation laws
A monolithic approach to convex limiting in continuous finite element schemes for linear advection equations, nonlinear scalar conservation laws, and hyperbolic systems with built-in convex limiters to resolve steep fronts in a sharp and nonoscillatory manner is introduced.

We formulate a new class of optimization-based methods for data transfer (remap) of a scalar conserved quantity between two close meshes with the same connectivity. We present the methods in the
Optimization-based remap and transport: A divide and conquer strategy for feature-preserving discretizations
The notion of adaptable targets, i.e., target quantities that reflect local solution properties, are introduced, which are used to formulate adaptable, conservative and bound-preserving optimization-based transport algorithms for Cartesian and latitude/longitude coordinate systems.
