A Convenient Entropy Satisfying T.V.D. Scheme for Computational Aerodynamics
Conservative shock capturing methods for the unsteady Euler equations are reviewed and it is shown that the concepts of entropy satisfaction and total variation diminution can be applied to the classical Lax-Wendroff scheme. For an associated scheme to be efficient in applications, it is necessary that it be able to capture strong shock waves with high resolution. We describe a scheme which is efficient in both respects.
