Unformatted text preview: MAE 290B, Winter 2010 HOMEWORK 3 Due Wed 02-24-2010 in class Provide source codes used to solve all problems PROBLEM 1 Consider the advection - diffusion equation t u + c x u = xx u, 1. Discretize this equation spatially using 2nd-order centered finite difference formulae for the convective terms and the diffusive terms. 2. Discretize the resulting set of ODEs temporally using a low-storage, mixed RK3- method. Express this discretization as a function of the two non-dimensional parate- mers CN = c t/ x (Courant Number) and V N = t/ ( x ) 2 . 3. Apply Von-Neumann stability analysis to determine the stability of the resulting spatio- temporal scheme. For this purpose, (a) Find the amplification factor = u n +1 j /u n j as a function of CN , V N and k x . (b) Plot the contour | | = 1 as a function of k x and CN for V N = 0 , 5 , 10 , 20. Use this plot to discuss the stability of the scheme (c) Consider now the case V N = 0. Find the maximum value of= 0....
