Spherical coordinates The spherical coordinate system extends polar coordinates into 3D by using an angle $\phi$ for the third coordinate. This gives coordinates $(r, \theta, \phi)$ consisting of: From your link, 1d (in radial direction) spherical problems can always be converted into a 1d cartesian diffusion equation with a change of variables. However, the change also deforms the initial condition (the step becomes a ramp) and I don't know if pursuing the solving could lead to an analytical solution. $\endgroup$ – Roan May 10 '17 at 3:32 Feb 18, 2019 · Thus, in my case m, a, and f are zero. If we are in Cartesian coordinate then d is one and c, the diffusion constant, is for example 0.001. However, I want to solve the equations in spherical coordinates. Here is a link to Laplacian in spherical coordinate: This article uses the standard notation ISO 80000-2, which supersedes ISO 31-11, for spherical coordinates (other sources may reverse the definitions of θ and φ): The polar angle is denoted by θ : it is the angle between the z -axis and the radial vector connecting the origin to the point in question. preserving DG method for solving the conservative phase space advection equation given by (1).

May 27, 2016 · The vorticity transport equation is basically advection-diffusion equation. It can be shown (see [1] or other CFD texts) that the FTCS method is unconditionally unstable for advection equation (inviscid flow). Adding diffusion allows the use of FTCS, but still a restrictive condition on time step remains. I ended up using the 4th order Runge ... Consider a 2D situation in which there is advection (direction taken as the x-axis) and diffusion in both downstream and transverse directions. The budget equation is: Then assume that advection dominates over diffusion (high Peclet number). In this case, u∂c/∂xdominates over D∂2c/∂x.

Two finite difference discretization schemes are compared. The schemes are tested on five cases of the functional form for the variable diffusivity. A more accurate and numerically stable discretization scheme is recommended.

Discretization in spherical coordinates¶ Let us now pose the problem from the section Diffusion equation in axi-symmetric geometries in spherical coordinates, where \(u\) only depends on the radial coordinate \(r\) and time \(t\). That is, we have spherical symmetry. For simplicity we restrict the diffusion coefficient \({\alpha}\) to be a ... 2h − z √ 4Dt. Advection. Advection is due to the ﬂow of spring water through the lake. Assuming the spring is not buoyant, it will spread out over the bottom of the lake and rise with a uniform vertical ﬂux velocity (recall that z is positive downward, so the ﬂow is in the minus z-direction) va= −Q/A = −5·10−7m/s. preserving DG method for solving the conservative phase space advection equation given by (1).
