On spatial discretization of the one-dimensional quasi-gasdynamic system of equations with general equations of state and entropy balance
The one-dimensional quasi-gasdynamic system of equations in the form of mass, momentum, and total energy conservation laws with general gas equations of state is considered. A family of three-point symmetric spatial discretizations of this system is studied for which the internal energy equation has a suitable form (without imbalance terms). An entropy balance equation is derived, and the influence exerted by the choice of discretizations of various terms on the form of difference imbalance terms in this equation is determined. Special discretizations are presented for which the corresponding nondivergence imbalance terms are zero. The Euler system of equations is solved numerically in the cases of a perfect polytropic gas, stiffened gas, and the van der Waals equations of state.
For the quasi-gasdynamic system of equations, there holds the law of nondecreasing entropy. Difference methods based on this system have been successfully used in numerous applications and test gasdynamic computations. In theoretical terms, however, for standard spatial discretizations of this system, the nondecreasing entropy law does not hold exactly even in the onedimensional case because of the mesh imbalance terms. For the quasigasdynamic equations, a new conservative spatial discretization is proposed for which the entropy balance equation has an appropriate form and the entropy production is guaranteed to be nonnegative (which also holds in the presence of body forces and heat sources). An important element of this discretization is that it makes use of nonstandard spaceaveraging techniques, including a nonlinear “logarithmic” averaging of the density and internal energy. The results hold on arbitrary nonuniform meshes.
A quasi-gasdynamic system of equations with a mass force and a heat source is well known in the case of the perfect polytropic gas. In the paper, the system is generalized to the case of general equations of gas state satisfying thermodynamic stability conditions. The entropy balance equation is studied. The validity of the non-negativity property is algebraically analyzed for the entropy production. Two different forms of writing are derived for its relaxation summands. Under a condition on the heat source intensity, the property is valid.
An application to one-dimensional Euler real gas dynamics equations is given. A two-level explicit symmetric in space finite-difference scheme is constructed. The scheme is tested in the cases of the stiffened gas and the Van der Waals gas equations of state.
We consider explicit two-level three-point in space finite-difference schemes for solving 1D barotropic gas dynamics equations. The schemes are based on special quasi-gasdynamic and quasi-hydrodynamic regularizations of the system. We linearize the schemes on a constant solution and derive the von Neumann type necessary condition and a CFL type criterion (necessary and sufficient condition) for weak conservativeness in $L^2$ for the corresponding initial-value problem on the whole line. The criterion is essentially narrower than the necessary condition and wider than a sufficient one obtained recently in a particular case; moreover, it corresponds most well to numerical results for the original gas dynamics system.
This proceedings publication is a compilation of selected contributions from the “Third International Conference on the Dynamics of Information Systems” which took place at the University of Florida, Gainesville, February 16–18, 2011. The purpose of this conference was to bring together scientists and engineers from industry, government, and academia in order to exchange new discoveries and results in a broad range of topics relevant to the theory and practice of dynamics of information systems. Dynamics of Information Systems: Mathematical Foundation presents state-of-the art research and is intended for graduate students and researchers interested in some of the most recent discoveries in information theory and dynamical systems. Scientists in other disciplines may also benefit from the applications of new developments to their own area of study.
