A second-order well-balanced finite volume scheme for Euler equations with gravity

by   Deepak Varma, et al.
Tata Institute

We present a well-balanced, second order, Godunov-type finite volume scheme for compressible Euler equations with gravity. By construction, the scheme admits a discrete stationary solution which is a second order accurate approximation to the exact stationary solution. Such a scheme is useful for problems involving complex equations of state and/or hydrostatic solutions which are not known in closed form expression. No á priori knowledge of the hydrostatic solution is required to achieve the well-balanced property. The performance of the scheme is demonstrated on several test cases in terms of preservation of hydrostatic solution and computation of small perturbations around a hydrostatic solution.
