Abstract

A new Petrov-Galerkin finite element formulation has been proposed for transient convection-diffusion problems. Most Petrov-Galerkin formulations take into account the spatial discretization and the weighting functions so developed give satisfactory solutions for steady state problems. Though these schemes can be used for transient problems, there is scope for improvement. The schemes proposed here, which take into account temporal as well as spatial discretization, provide improved solutions. In view of the generality of the differential equation being solved, these schemes can be implemented for any physical problem which is governed by the transient convection-diffusion equation. It is also expected that these schemes, suitably adapted, will improve the numerical solutions of the compressible Euler and Navier-Stokes equations.
