Galerkin and Control Volume Finite Element Methods for Large Scale Air Pollution Simulations: A Comparison

  • Anton Antonov
Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 2542)


The methods compared are implemented within the objectoriented framework of the Danish Eulerian Model for large scale air pollution simulations. Their mathematical formulations are explained in the paper. The results of the simulations are shown, and the corresponding phase and group velocities are discussed.
