We present a high-order integral nodal discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method to solve Burgers' equation. The method lays the first stone of a novel class of integral nodal DG methods exhibiting exponential convergence rates in both spatial and temporal directions; thus, producing highly accurate approximations using a significantly small number of collocation points. This useful result is proven theoretically under some mild conditions. The paper also introduces the first rigorous rounding-error analysis for the Gegenbauer integration matrices proving their stability feature. Two useful strategies were proposed to significantly reduce the errors in certain special cases and to handle problems with relatively large time domains. Extensive numerical comparisons with other competitive numerical methods manifest the superior accuracy and efficiency of the proposed numerical method. The established numerical method is so accurate in general for sufficiently smooth solutions to the extent that exact, or nearly exact solutions can be achieved using relatively small collocation points as the viscosity parameter B --> 0.


An Efficient Domain Cascading Approach for Linear Discontinuous Galerkin Schemes
Doğan, Doğanay; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (null; 2018-04-09)
A discontinuous Galerkin finite element method based domain decomposition technique is presented for solving Maxwell's Equations. The method can be implemented with either time domain or frequency domain solutions for sub-domains. The problem in each sub domain is solved using open boundaries. A connection in frequency domain is then established between the solved outward and inward fluxes of the sub-domains touching each other. No field continuity is imposed giving the technique high computational efficien...
Energy Stable Discontinuous Galerkin Finite Element Method for the Allen-Cahn Equation
Karasözen, Bülent; Sariaydin-Filibelioglu, Ayse; Yücel, Hamdullah (2018-05-01)
In this paper, we investigate numerical solution of Allen-Cahn equation with constant and degenerate mobility, and with polynomial and logarithmic energy functionals. We discretize the model equation by symmetric interior penalty Galerkin (SIPG) method in space, and by average vector field (AVF) method in time. We show that the energy stable AVF method as the time integrator for gradient systems like the Allen-Cahn equation satisfies the energy decreasing property for fully discrete scheme. Numerical result...

Güngör, Osman; Özgen, Serkan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2019)
In this work, 2 dimensional flow solutions of Euler equations are presented from the developed discontinuous Galerkin method finite element method (DGFEM) solver on unstructured grids. Euler equations govern the inviscid and adiabatic flows with a set of hyperbolic equations. The discretization of governing equations for DGFEM is given in detail. The DGFEM discretization provides high order solutions on an element-compact stencil hence only elements having common boundary are coupled. The required elementwise ...
Moving mesh discontinuous Galerkin methods for PDEs with traveling waves
UZUNCA, MURAT; Karasözen, Bülent; Kucukseyhan, T. (2017-01-01)
In this paper, a moving mesh discontinuous Galerkin (dG) method is developed for nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs) with traveling wave solutions. The moving mesh strategy for one dimensional PDEs is based on the rezoning approach which decouples the solution of the PDE from the moving mesh equation. We show that the dG moving mesh method is able to resolve sharp wave fronts and wave speeds accurately for the optimal, arc-length and curvature monitor functions. Numerical results reveal the effi...
The finite element method over a simple stabilizing grid applied to fluid flow problems
Aydın, Selçuk Han; Tezer-Sezgin, Münevver; Department of Scientific Computing (2008)
We consider the stabilized finite element method for solving the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations and the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations in two dimensions. The well-known instabilities arising from the application of standard Galerkin finite element method are eliminated by using the stabilizing subgrid method (SSM), the streamline upwind Petrov-Galerkin (SUPG) method, and the two-level finite element method (TLFEM). The domain is discretized into a set of regular triangular elements. In SSM, the...
