Kinetic theory based waveparticle splitting scheme for Euler equations
Abstract
A new upwind waveparticle splitting scheme is developed, based on the connection between the kinetic theory of gased and Euler equations and using the concept of thermal velocity. The new upwind method is applied to the standard onedimensional shock tube problem and to the problem of twodimensional shock reflection from a flat plate. Results for the twodimensional problem showed that the new scheme is much less dissipative than the kinetic flux vector splitting scheme of Deshpande (1986) and Mandal (1989).
