High-order finite-volume methods on locally-structured grids

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We present an approach to designing arbitrarily high-order finite-volume spatial discretizations on locally-rectangular grids. It is based on the use of a simple class of high-order quadratures for computing the average of fluxes over faces. This approach has the advantage of being a variation on widely-used second-order methods, so that the prior experience in engineering those methods carries over in the higher-order case. Among the issues discussed are the basic design principles for uniform grids, the extension to locally-refined nest grid hierarchies, and the treatment of complex geometries using mapped grids, multiblock grids, and cut-cell representations.
