Energy-consistent finite difference schemes for compressible hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics using nonlinear filtering

02/24/2021 ∙ by Haruhisa Iijima, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper, an energy-consistent finite difference scheme for the compressible hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations is introduced. For the compressible magnetohydrodynamics, an energy-consistent finite difference formulation is derived using the product rule for the spatial difference. The conservation properties of the internal, kinetic, and magnetic energy equations can be satisfied in the discrete level without explicitly solving the total energy equation. The shock waves and discontinuities in the numerical solution are stabilized by nonlinear filtering schemes. An energy-consistent discretization of the filtering schemes is also derived by introducing the viscous and resistive heating rates. The resulting energy-consistent formulation can be implemented with the various kinds of central difference, nonlinear filtering, and time integration schemes. The second- and fifth-order schemes are implemented based on the proposed formulation. The conservation properties and the robustness of the present schemes are demonstrated via one- and two-dimensional numerical tests. The proposed schemes successfully handle the most stringent problems in extremely high Mach number and low beta conditions.
