Properties of numerical methods
The following criteria are crucial to the performance of a numerical algorithm:
1. Consistency
The discretization of a PDE should become exact as the
mesh size tends to zero (truncation error should vanish)
2. Stability
Num
Analysis of numerical dissipation and dispersion
Modied equation method: the exact solution of the discretized equations
satises a PDE which is generally dierent from the one to be solved

It was originally intended to provide an analytical means for evaluating ship

Introduction
Propuslion: Propulsion is the act or an instance of driving or
pushing forward of a body, i.e. ship, by a propeller (in our
case a screw propeller).
Propusion systems: There are many types

Finite dierence method
Principle: derivatives in the partial dierential equation are approximated
by linear combinations of function values at the grid points

Finite volume method
The nite volume method is based on (I)
rather than (D). The integral conservation
law is enforced for small control volumes
dened by the computational mesh:
