ASYMPTOTIC SOLUTIONS OF NUMERICAL TRANSPORT PROBLEMS IN OPTICALLY THICK, DIFFUSIVE REGIMES .2. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • In a recent article (Larsen, Morel, and Miller, J. Comput. Phys. 69, 283 (1987)), a theoretical method is described for assessing the accuracy of transport differencing schemes in highly scattering media with optically thick spatial meshes. In the present article, this method is extended to enable one to determine the accuracy of such schemes in the presence of numerically unresolved boundary layers. Numerical results are presented that demonstrate the validity and accuracy of our analysis. 1989.
