Title: Total variation stability and second-order accuracy at extrema
Author: Ritesh Kumar Dubey (SRM Univ., Tamilnadu, India)
Abstract:
It is well known that high order total variation diminishing (TVD)
schemes for hyperbolic conservation laws degenerate to first-order accuracy,
even at smooth extrema; hence they suffer from clipping error.
In this work, TVD bounds on representative three-point second-order
accurate schemes are given for the scalar case, which show that it is possible
to obtain second order TVD approximation at points of extrema as well as in
steep gradient regions. These bounds can be used to improve existing
high order TVD schemes and to reduce clipping error. In a 1D scalar test
cases, an existing limiters based high order TVD scheme is applied,
along with these second-order schemes using their TVD bounds to show
improvement in the numerical results at extrema and steep gradient regions.
