IJFV International Journal On Finite Volumes
http://www.ijfv.org/
The International Journal on Finite Volumes addresses work at the interface between the theortical mathematics, applied mathematics and numerical computation. The purpose of the journal is to provide a forum for the publication of high quality research and tutorial papers in computational mathematics related to the Finite Volumes method. In addition to the traditional issues and problems in mathematical and numerical analysis, the journal also publishes papers describing relevant applications in such fields as fluid dynamics, multiphysics processes, Maxwell equations, physics of solid, engineering and other branches of applied science. The journal strives to be flexible in the type of papers and contributions it publishes and their format. Work coming from the industrial world is also welcome. Review papers and papers on teaching these subjects are also published. Manuscripts submitted for publication are judged on the basis of significance, originality, appropriateness of subject matter, and clarity of presentation. The decision regarding acceptance or rejection of a manuscript is the responsibility of the editors and is based in large part on the recommendations of expert reviewers. The role played by the Journal as an interface between theory and practice means that it will be of great interest to those in both academic and business worlds. The high standard of the Journal will be guaranteed by the presence of an international Editorial Board. This will ensure the efficiency of the refereeing procedure. IJFV publishes two types of articles : Working contributions, which are not subject to review, other than by the Editors; and Refereed Papers, which are subject to the normal process of peerreview. In this process, the papers are first reviewed by the Editor who receives the paper and, if its field is considered to be within the scope of the journal, it is then proposed to some experts of this field for review. Where specialist expertise outside that held by the Editors and Editorial Board members is required, it will be sought from specialists in the field known to the Editors or to Editorial Board members. We are in the process of appointing an international Editorial Board and, in future, members of the Board will act as additional referees. Refereed papers, in other words, will be subject to the full rigour of peer review as it is exercised by scholarly printed journals. The difference between the peerreview process for IJFV and that of printed journals is speed of publication. We expect to publish papers within two to five months of submission. Prospective authors should note that, now digital publications may be submitted for assessment and should be subject to the same quality criteria as papers published by traditional means.enSPIP  www.spip.netRobust MUSCL Schemes for TenMoment Gaussian Closure Equations with Source Terms

<div class='rss_texte'><p>Abstract:</p> <p>In this article, we present positivity preserving secondorder numerical schemes to approximate TenMoment Gaussian closure equations with source terms. The challenge here is to preserve the positivity of the density and the symmetric pressure tensor. We propose MUSCL type numerical schemes to overcome these difficulties. The principal components of the proposed schemes are a Strang splitting of the source terms, positivity preserving first order scheme and suitable linear reconstruction process which ensures the positivity of the reconstructed variables. To achieve positivity of reconstructed variables, we impose the additional restrictions on the slopes of the linear reconstructions. Additionally, the source is discretized using both explicit and implicit methods. In the case of explicit source discretization, we derive the appropriate condition on the time step for discretization to be positivity preserving. Implicit discretization of the source terms is shown to be unconditionally positivity preserving. Numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the superior robustness and stability of the proposed numerical schemes.</p> <p>Key words : TenMoment equations, Finite Volume Methods, MUSCL Scheme, Positivity preserving schemes.</p> <p>Paper presented by: Thierry Gallouët</p></div>

The three formulations are shown to lead to equivalent definitions of the phase transitions for our gas liquid thermodynamical model. Then, they are compared numerically in terms of solution and convergence of the Newton type non linear solver on several 1D and 3D test cases including gas appearance and liquid disappearance. The 3D discretization is based on the Vertex Approximate Gradient (VAG) scheme [10] and takes into account discontinuous capillary pressures.</p> <p>Key words : Darcy flow, twophase flow, phase transitions, composi tional models, finite volume scheme, discontinuous capillary pressures</p> <p>Paper presented by: Professor Thierry Gallouet</p></div>

<div class='rss_texte'><p>Abstract
The present work concerns the derivation of entropy stability properties to be satisfied by highorder accurate finite volume methods. Such a sta bility turns out to be crucial when approximating the weak solutions of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws. In fact, several recent works pro pose some kind of discrete entropy inequalities associated to highorder schemes. However, these entropy preserving schemes do not seem relevant to impose that the converged solution (in the sense of the LaxWendroff Theorem) satisfies the required entropy inequalities. We illustrate such a failure by exhibiting numerical schemes that, from one hand, satisfy en tropy stability and, from the other hand, do not prevent numerical blow up. Here, we recall the expected highorder discrete entropy inequalities to be certain that the approximate solution converges to an entropy solution. Equipped with these sufficient numerical entropy stability, we propose to extend the recently introduced highorder MOOD scheme to satisfy the required highorder entropy inequalities. In fact, the MOOD approach is based on an a posteriori estimation and it seems impossible to impose a posteriori the whole set of discrete entropy inequalities. We solve this dif ficulty by considering a finite volume scheme, which involves (at least one) discrete entropy inequalities with a numerical transport property. From one selected numerical transport discrete entropy inequality, we establish that all the needed discrete entropy inequalities are satisfied. Arguing this specific numerical transport entropy, we derive the expected a posteriori entropy condition to get an entropy preserving highorder MOOD scheme. Numerical experiments illustrate the relevance of the suggested numerical procedure.</p> <p>Keywords : Euler equations, numerical approximation, finite volume methods, highorder approximation, discrete entropy inequalities.</p> <p>Paper presented by: Professor Thierry Gallouet</p></div>
