ACCURATE MODELLING OP TWO-DIMENSIONAL MASS TRANSPORT

Lance Bode, Rodney J. Sobey

Abstract


Any numerical solution of the convective transport equation in an Eulerian framework will exhibit inherent numerical dispersion and solution oscillations. The magnitude of such numerical errors is often so severe as to destroy the value of many computed solutions. A successful and economical algorithm for the convective transport equation in one spatial dimension has been published recently by one of the authors (RJS), in which an exact solution is achieved by means of a moving coordinate system. The present study describes the extension of this work to the more important and challenging two-dimensional case.
