Finite-Difference Methods for Two-Dimensional Long Waves

  • Cornelis B. Vreugdenhil


In order to solve the two-dimensional long-wave equations numerically, the region of interest is covered by a rectangular grid. Recently, curvilinear grids that fit to the boundaries have been used but this is outside the scope of this book. There are various ways of arranging the variables in the grid, three of which are shown in Fig. 18.1.
