Part of the Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics (NNFM) book series (NNFM, volume 29)


In this paper we shall discuss some problems which may arise in the context of dimensional splitting for conservation laws. We shall study a directionally adapted scheme which has better stability properties at least for anisotropic scalar equations in 2-D. This algorithm can be generalized to the non-linear unsteady Euler equations in 2-D and can be used to reduce the system locally to a scalar equation in 2-D.
