Abstract:Element result data are in general discontinuous across element boundaries. In the ALE method
convection of these data with respect to the element grid is required.
In this paper we present a convection method, which is based on a least squares projection. For moderate
convective displacements it is reformulated in terms of a field integral and boundary flux terms. For one dimensional
problems the method can be shown to be third order in space. For two dimensional problems the method
is stable for Courant numbers upto 1.05.
Based on this method a simplification is suggested where the calculation of gradients of fields in upwind elements
is not needed. This simplification is paid for by a slight decrease in stability. A maximum Courant
number of 0.72 is still attainable.
The methods are outlined in one dimension, results are shown of two dimensional calculations
