Artificial dissipation models for the Euler equations. (English) Zbl 0611.76075
Various artificial dissipation models that are used with central difference algorithms for the Euler equations are analyzed for their effect on accuracy, stability, and convergence rates.
In particular, linear and nonlinear models are investigated using an implicit approximate factorization code for transonic airfoils. Fully implicit application of the dissipation models is shown to improve robustness and convergence rates. The treatment of dissipation models at boundaries will be examined. It will be shown that accurate, error free solutions with sharp shocks can be obtained using a central difference algorithm coupled with an appropriate nonlinear artificial dissipation model.
