A critical evaluation of theresolution properties of bspline and compact finite difference methods (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. College of Engineering. University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign, 200002)Resolution properties of Bspline and compact finite difference schemes are compared using Fourier analysis in periodic domains, and tests based on solution of the wave and heat equations in finite domains, with uniform ...

(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. College of Engineering. University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign, 200002)We propose a variant of the Eulerian method for twophase flow that is valid for small particle response time T. For small T, the particle velocity field v(x, t) approaches a unique, equilibrium field, independent of initial ...
