A Wave Propagation Method for Conservation Laws and Balance Laws with Spatially Varying Flux Functions
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2002)
We study a general approach to solving conservation laws of the form qt+f(q,x)x=0, where the flux function f(q,x) has explicit spatial variation. Finite-volume methods are used in which the flux is discretized spatially, giving a function fi(q) over the ith grid cell and leading to a generalized Riemann problem between ...
A wave propagation method for three-dimensional hyperbolic conservation laws
A class of wave propagation algorithms for three-dimensional conservation laws and other hyperbolic systems is developed. These unsplit finite-volume methods are based on solving one-dimensional Riemann problems at the cell interfaces and applying flux-limiter functions to suppress oscillations arising from second-derivative ...
