PDE & Numerical Analysis Seminar Date and Time: 12th October 2018, at 4PM Venue: Ramanujan Hall, Mathematics Department. Speaker: Samala Rathan, VNIT, Nagpur. Title: "High-resolution shock capturing high-order WENO schemes for hyperbolic conservation laws" Abstract of the seminar: "In this talk, we present a class of new higher order WENO spatial approximation schemes to solve the hyperbolic conservation laws along with the use of total variation diminishing (TVD)/strong stability preserving Runge-Kutta (SSPRK) temporial derivative approximation techniques. The objective of these developments aim for the improvements, in obtaining higher resolution and efficiency of the solution which retains the desired order of accuracy in smooth regions and in the presence of critical points. These improvements have been achieved by mainly focusing on the construction of new smoothness indicators which plays a key role in the spatial derivative approximation of flux function via the nonlinear weights in WENO algorithm. With these new measurements, higher-order WENO schemes viz fifth and seventh-order WENO schemes have been constructed and subsequently imposed a sufficient condition on the parameters in the weight functions which recovers the optimal order for smooth regions of solution that includes the critical points. Numerical results show that these new schemes achieve optimal-order of accuracy. These schemes also show the advantage of resolving the sharper results for shock waves, contact discontinuities and the regions that contain high-frequency waves."
