Abstract

Van Leer's flux vector splitting scheme and Osher's flux difference splitting scheme are compared for solving the Navier-Stokes equations governing the hypersonic viscous flow. The effects of the grid number, the grid stretching, and the strength of the hmiter on the solution are studied for both of the schemes. Sensitivity of the results to these parameters are then compared for the two schemes.
