Pressure-correction projection finite element methods (FEMs) are proposed to solve nonstationary natural convection problems in this paper. The first-order and second-order backward difference formulas are applied for time derivative, the stability analysis and error estimates of the semi-discrete schemes are presented using energy method. Compared with characteristic variational multiscale FEM, pressure-correction projection FEMs are more efficient and unconditionally energy stable. Ample numerical results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the pressure-correction projection FEMs for solving these problems.
In this paper, the second order convergence of the interpolation based on -element is derived in the case of d=1, 2 and 3. Using the integral average on each element, the new basis functions of tensor product type is builded up and we can easily extend it to the higher dimensional case. Finally, some numerical tests are made to show the analytical results of the interpolation errors.
A numerical comparison of finite difference (FD) and finite element (FE) methods for a stochastic ordinary differential equation is made. The stochastic ordinary differential equation is turned into a set of ordinary differential equations by applying polynomial chaos, and the FD and FE methods are then implemented. The resulting numerical solutions are all non-negative. When orthogonal polynomials are used for either continuous or discrete processes, numerical experiments also show that the FE method is more accurate and efficient than the FD method.
Three iterative stabilised finite element methods based on local Gauss integration are proposed in order to solve the steady two-dimensional Smagorinsky model numerically. The Stokes iterative scheme, the Newton iterative scheme and the Oseen iterative scheme are adopted successively to deal with the nonlinear terms involved. Numerical experiments are carried out to demonstrate their effectiveness. Furthermore, the effect of the parameters Re (the Reynolds number) and δ (the spatial filter radius) on the performance of the iterative numerical results is discussed.
We obtain the coefficient matrices of the finite element (FE), finite volume (FV) and finite difference (FD) methods based on P1-conforming elements on a quasi-uniform mesh, in order to approximately solve a boundary value problem involving the elliptic Poisson equation. The three methods are shown to possess the same H1-stability and convergence. Some numerical tests are made, to compare the numerical results from the three methods and to review our theoretical results.
In this paper, stabilized Crank-Nicolson/Adams-Bashforth schemes are presented for the Allen-Cahn and Cahn-Hilliard equations. It is shown that the proposed time discretization schemes are either unconditionally energy stable, or conditionally energy stable under some reasonable stability conditions. Optimal error estimates for the semi-discrete schemes and fully-discrete schemes will be derived. Numerical experiments are carried out to demonstrate the theoretical results.
