Efficient Fully Discrete Summation-by-Parts Schemes for Unsteady Flow Problems: An Initial Investigation
We make an initial investigation into the temporal efficiency of a fully discrete summation-by-parts approach for stiff unsteady flows with boundary layers. As a model problem for the Navier–Stokes equations we consider a two-dimensional advection-diffusion problem with a boundary layer. The problem is discretized in space using finite difference approximations on summation-by-parts form together with weak boundary conditions, leading to optimal stability estimates. For the time integration part we consider various forms of high order summation-by-parts operators, and compare the results to an existing popular fourth order diagonally implicit Runge-Kutta method. To solve the resulting fully discrete equation system, we employ a multi-grid scheme with dual time stepping.
