  • Abstract

An upwind difference scheme was given by the author in [5] for the numerical solution of steady-state problems. The present work studies this upwind scheme and its corresponding boundary scheme for the numerical solution of unsteady problems. For interior points the difference equations are approximations of the characteristic relations corresponding to the outgoing characteristics and the "non-reflecting" boundary conditions. Calculation of a Riemann problem in a finite computational region yields promising numerical results.
