Abstract

We present, for the SUPG formulation of inviscid compressible flows, stabilization parameters defined based on the degree-of-freedom submatrices of the element-level matrices. With 2D steady-state test problems involving supersonic flows and shocks, we compare these stabilization parameters with the ones defined based on the full element-level matrices. We also compare them to the stabilization parameters introduced in the earlier development stages of the SUPG formulation of compressible flows. In all cases the formulation includes a shock-capturing term involving a shock-capturing parameter. We investigate the difference between updating the stabilization and shock-capturing parameters at the end of every time step and at the end of every nonlinear iteration within a time step. The formulation includes, as an option, an algorithmic feature that is based on freezing the shock-capturing parameter at its current value when a convergence stagnation is detected.
