CHARACTERISTIC GALERKIN METHOD FOR CONVECTION-DIFFUSION EQUATIONS AND IMPLICIT ALGORITHM USING PRECISE INTEGRATION
<正> This paper presents a finite element procedure for solving tran-sient, multidimensional convection-diffusion equations. The procedure is based onthe characteristic Galerkin method with an implicit algorithm using precise integra-tion method. With the operator splitting procedure, the precise integration methodis introduced to determine the material derivative in the convection-diffusion equa-tion, consequently, the physical quantities of material points. An implicit algorithmwith a combination of both the precise and the traditional numerical integration pro-cedures in time domain in the Lagrange coordinates for the characteristic Galerkinmethod is formulated. The stability analysis of the algorithm shows that the uncondi-tional stability of present implicit algorithm is enhanced as compared with that of thetraditional implicit numerical integration procedure. The numerical results validatethe presented method in solving convection-diffusion equations. As compared withSUPG method and explicit characteristic Galerkin method, the present method givesthe results with higher accuracy and better stability.
