A cell-centered Lagrangian scheme with the preservation of symmetry and conservation properties for compressible fluid flows in two-dimensional cylindrical geometry. (English) Zbl 1425.35142
Summary: We develop a new cell-centered control volume Lagrangian scheme for solving Euler equations of compressible gas dynamics in cylindrical coordinates. The scheme is designed to be able to preserve one-dimensional spherical symmetry in a two-dimensional cylindrical geometry when computed on an equal-angle-zoned initial grid. Unlike many previous area-weighted schemes that possess the spherical symmetry property, our scheme is discretized on the true volume and it can preserve the conservation property for all the conserved variables including density, momentum and total energy. Several two-dimensional numerical examples in cylindrical coordinates are presented to demonstrate the performance of the scheme in terms of symmetry, accuracy and non-oscillatory properties.
