Asymptotic preserving schemes for linear transport on unstructured meshes. We consider hyperbolic systems with stiff source terms used to approximate the linear transport equation (or Boltzmann linear equation) present in neutronic or radiative transfer. These systems are dependent of a relaxation parameter which generate a diffusion limit. In this work we propose to design finite volumes schemes on unstructured meshes with convergence estimates and stability conditions independent of the relaxation parameter (asymptotic preserving methods). see more

Asymptotic preserving and Well-Balanced schemes for non linear hyperbolic systems in fluid mechanics. In this work we study some asymptotic limit the the behavior of the numerical schemes in these regimes. The first point concerns the asymptotic preserving positives schemes (methods with the convergence estimates and stability conditions are independent of the relaxation parameter) and "well-balanced" schemes (methods which preserve the steady states associated to the PDE) for the Euler equations with friction and gravity. The second limit studied is the low mach limit. see more

Implicit finite element schemes for MHD and reduced MHD. The context of this work is the resolution of the MHD equations (Jorek code) and the simulation of the plasma instabilities for the Tokamak as ITER. Firstly we propose to study the theoretical and numerical stability in time for the reduced MHD models. The second part concers the implicit time schemes for the MHD: full solver + preconditioning or splitted solver. The last part is about the compatigle finite element coupled with the implicit scheme. see more

Implicit high-order relaxation scheme for hyperbolic/parabolic PDE. The relaxation models allows to approximate a nonlinear system by a larger linear system with a nonlienar local source. Combining high order splitting scheme, and implicit for the transport ans the source we obtain an high order implicit and simple schemes. After the design of these schemes we consider specific regime as Low-mach regime for euler equation or diffusion dominant flows. see more
