A compact five-point stencil based on integrated RBFs for 2D second-order differential problems

Mai-Duy, N. and Tran-Cong, T. (2013) A compact five-point stencil based on integrated RBFs for 2D second-order differential problems. Journal of Computational Physics, 235. pp. 302-321. ISSN 0021-9991


In this paper, a compact 5-point stencil for the discretisation of second-order partial differential equations (PDEs) in two space dimensions is proposed. We employ integrated radial basis functions in one dimension (1D-IRBFs)to construct the approximations for the dependent variable and its derivatives over the three nodes in each direction of the stencil. Certain nodal values of the second-order derivatives are incorporated into the approximations with help of the integration constants. In the case of elliptic PDEs, one algebraic equation if formed at each interior node, and the obtained final system, of which each row has 5 non-zero entries, is solved iteratively using a Picard scheme. In the case of parabolic PDEs discretised with a Crank Nicolson procedure, a set of three simultaneous algebraic equations is established at each interior node and the three equations through the implicit elimination approach. Linear and non-linear test problems, including lid-driven cavity flow and natural convection between the outer square and in the inner cylinder, are considered to verify the proposed stencil.
