High-resolution simulation of inviscid flow in general domains

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this paper, a high-resolution finite volume method for calculating solutions to a hyperbolic conservation law is presented. The method works in two space dimensions on general domains and uses curvilinear meshes. A non-trivial estimation of gradients needed for the reconstructions is presented. The paper contains examples of numerical solutions of the Enter gas dynamics equations.
