Implementation of different flux evaluation schemes into a two-dimensional Euler solver

Eraslan, Elvan
This study investigates the accuracy and efficiency of several flux splitting methods for the compressible, two-dimensional Euler equations. Steger-Warming flux vector splitting method, Van Leer flux vector splitting method, The Advection Upstream Splitting Method (AUSM), Artificially Upstream Flux Vector Splitting Scheme (AUFS) and Roe’s flux difference splitting schemes were implemented using the first- and second-order reconstruction methods. Limiter functions were embedded to the second-order reconstruction methods. The flux splitting methods are applied to subsonic, transonic and supersonic flows over NACA0012 airfoil, as well as subsonic, transonic and supersonic flows in a channel. The comparison of the obtained results with each other and the ones in the literature is presented. The advantages and disadvantages of each scheme among others are identified.
