Behavior of upwind finite volume scheme for Low Mach number flows

Participants : Hervé Guillard, Boniface Nkonga.

We have performed a review of different modifications proposed to enable compressible flow solvers to compute accurately flows near the incompressible limit. The reasons of the failure of upwind solvers to obtain accurate solutions in the low Mach number regime have been explained and different corrections proposed in the literature have been reviewed and discussed. Numerical experiments to illustrate the behavior of the different methods have been done and presented. This work will be published in 2017 as a contribution for the “Handbook of numerical analysis” collection.
