Du Fort–Frankel finite difference scheme for Burgers equation

Abstract

In this paper we apply the Du Fort–Frankel finite difference scheme on Burgers equation and solve three test problems. We calculate the numerical solutions using Mathematica 7.0 for different values of viscosity. We have considered smallest value of viscosity as 10−4 and observe that the numerical solutions are in good agreement with the exact solution.
