Seminar - Improved CESE Method and its Application by Professor De-Liang Zhang
Date: 18 December 2012 (Tuesday)
Time: 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Venue: EF305, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
The space-time Conservation Element and Solution Element (CE/SE) method is a novel numerical framework for solving hyperbolic conservation laws. It substantially differs from other traditional well-established methods. However, the mesh construction of original two-dimensional CE/SE method is very complicated and difficult to extend to three-dimensional (3D) situations. In the paper, an improved CE/SE method has been constructed by adopting another general hexahedral mesh for 2D and 3D flow simulation. The improved CE/SE scheme with two-order accuracy was deduced. The numerical results of some basic problems were discussed and compared with corresponding experiment results. The accuracy of the new scheme is examined. It is shown that the new scheme has features of high resolution, simple form and robustness. Finally, we extend the new scheme to apply to gaseous compressible flow, incompressible viscous flow, chemical reaction flow, multiphase flow and Flows in Porous Media. So the improved CE/SE scheme open up bright prospective for the application of scientific research and engineering technology.
