39 Mathematical manipulation physical reality ? There is no any physical evolution law about the time evolution of derivatives in a discontinuous region ! weak solution)

40 Even in the smooth region, in the update of slope or high-order derivatives through weak solution, the Riemann solver (1 st -order dynamics) does NOT provide appropriate dynamics. Example: Riemann solver only provides u, not at a cell interface

42 Generalized solutions with piecewise discontinuous initial data Initial condition at t=0 Reconstructed new initial condition from nodal values Update flow variables at nodal points (, ) at next time level, And calculate flux STRONG Solution from Three Piecewise Initial Data

43 Control Volume PDEs local evolution solution (strong solution) is used to Model the gas flow passing through the cell interface in a discretized space. PDE-based Modeling

44 44 Different scale physical modeling Boltzmann Eqs. Navier-Stokes Euler quantum Newton Flow description depends on the scale of the discretized space

45 Conclusion GKS is basically a gas evolution modeling in a discretized space. This modeling covers the physics from the kinetic scale to the hydrodynamic scale. In GKS, the effects of inviscid & viscous, space & time, different by directions, and kinetic & hydrodynamic scales, are fully coupled. Due to the limited cell size, the kinetic scale physical effect is needed to represent numerical shock structure, especially in the high Mach number case. Inside the numerical shock layer, there is no enough particle collisions to generate the so-called Riemann solution with distinctive waves. The Riemann solution as a foundation of modern CFD is questionable.

46 In the discontinuous case, there is no such a physical law related to the time evolution of high- order derivatives. The foundation of the DG method is not solid. It may become a game of limiters to modify the updated high-order derivatives in high speed flow computation.
