Approximate Riemann Solvers, Godunov Schemes, and Contact Discontinuities

Burton Wendroff

Abstract: A two-dimensional (2D) 9-state approximate Riemann solver and corresponding 2D Godunov scheme are developed. A contact-preserving form of Lax-Friedrichs in one and two dimensions is presented. Numerical examples are given for several one and two-dimensional Riemann problems.
