A Cell-centered Diffusion Finite Volume Scheme and it's Application to Magnetic Flux Compression Generators

Authors: Qiang Zhao, Yina Shi, Guangwei Yuan, Zhiwei Dong


A cell-centered finite volume scheme for discretizing diffusion operators on distorted quadrilateral meshes has recently been designed and added to APMFCG to enable that code to be used as a tool for studying explosive magnetic flux compression generators. This paper describes this scheme. Comparisons with analytic results for 2-D test cases are presented, as well as 2-D results from a test of a "realistic" generator configuration.

Keywords: Cell-centered FVM, distorted meshes, diffusion scheme, MFCG.
