Limiter-free discontinuity-capturing scheme for compressible gas dynamics with reactive fronts

Abstract

This work proposes a new spatial reconstruction scheme in finite volume frameworks. Different from long-lasting reconstruction processes which employ high order polynomials enforced with some carefully designed limiting pro- jections to seek stable solutions around discontinuities, the current discretized scheme employs THINC (Tangent of Hyperbola for INterface Capturing) functions with adaptive sharpness to solve both smooth and discontinuous solutions. Due to the essentially monotone and bounded properties of THINC function, difficulties to solve sharp discontinuous solutions and complexities associated with designing limiting projections can be prevented. A new simplified BVD (Boundary Variations Diminishing) algorithm, so-called adaptive THINC-BVD, is devised to reduce numerical dissipations through minimizing the total boundary variations for each cell. Verified through numerical tests, the present method is able to capture both smooth and discontinuous solutions in Euler equations for com- pressible gas dynamics with excellent solution quality competitive to other existing schemes. More profoundly, it provides an accurate and reliable solver for a class of reactive compressible gas flows with stiff source terms, such as the gaseous detonation waves, which are quite challenging to other high-resolution schemes. The stiff C-J detonation benchmark test reveals that the adaptive THINC-BVD scheme can accurately capture the reacting front of the gaseous detonation, while the WENO scheme with the same grid resolution generates unacceptable results. Owing also to its algorithmic simplicity, the proposed method can become as a practical and promising numerical solver for compress- ible gas dynamics, particularly for simulations involving strong discontinuities and reacting fronts with stiff source term.
