We consider the Galerkin finite element method (FEM) for the incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations in two dimension. The domain is discretized into a set of regular triangular elements and the finite-dimensional spaces employed consist of piecewise continuous linear interpolants enriched with the residual-free bubble functions. To find the bubble part of the solution, a two-level FEM with a stabilizing subgrid of a single node is described and its application to the MHD equations is displayed. Numerical approximations employing the proposed algorithm are presented for three benchmark problems including the MHD cavity flow and the MHD flow over a step. The results show that the proper choice of the subgrid node is crucial to get stable and accurate numerical approximations consistent with the physical configuration of the problem at a cheap computational cost. Furthermore, the approximate Solutions obtained show the well-known characteristics of the MHD flow. Copyright (C) 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

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...
Two-way Fourier Split Step Algorithm over Variable Terrain with Narrow and Wide Angle Propagators

Helmholtz's wave equation can be approximated by means of two differential equations, corresponding to forward and backward propagating waves each of which is in parabolic wave equation (PWE) form. The standard PWE is very suitable for marching-type numerical solutions. The one-way Fourier split-step parabolic equation algorithm (SSPE) is highly effective in modeling electromagnetic (EM) wave propagation above the Earth's irregular surface through inhomogeneous atmosphere. The two drawbacks of the standard ...
Solution of Navier-Stokes Equations Using FEM with Stabilizing Subgrid
Tezer, Münevver; Aydın Bayram, Selma (2009-07-03)
The Galerkin finite element method (FEM) is used for solving the incompressible Navier Stokes equations in 2D. Regular triangular elements are used to discretize the domain and the finite-dimensional spaces employed consist of piece wise continuous linear interpolants enriched with the residual-free bubble (RFB) functions. To find the bubble part of the solution, a two-level FEM with a stabilizing subgrid of a single node is described in our previous paper [Int. J. Numer. Methods Fluids 58, 551-572 (2007)]....
Finite bisimulations for switched linear systems
Aydın Göl, Ebru; Lazar, Mircea; Belta, Calin (2013-02-04)
In this paper, we consider the problem of constructing a finite bisimulation quotient for a discrete-time switched linear system in a bounded subset of its state space. Given a set of observations over polytopic subsets of the state space and a switched linear system with stable subsystems, the proposed algorithm generates the bisimulation quotient in a finite number of steps with the aid of sublevel sets of a polyhedral Lyapunov function. Starting from a sublevel set that includes the origin in its interio...
