Abstract This article considers transient flows for planar contractions and Oldroyd-B fluids, with increasing flow-rate boundary conditions. We employ a novel hybrid finite volume/element time-dependent algorithm. This scheme is shown to be second-order accurate. The hybrid scheme consists of a Taylor–Galerkin finite element discretisation, and a cell-vertex fluctuation-distribution finite volume approach. These two approaches are coupled at each time-step to solve the parabolic/hyperbolic… CONTINUE READING
