Tucker, PG and Long, CA (1996) Semi-implicit second order finite volume jet stream computations. International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat and Fluid Flow, 6. pp. 39-50. ISSN 0961-5539Full text not available from this repository.
Semi-implicit, second order temporal and spatial finite volume computations of the flow in a differentially heated rotating annulus are presented. For the regime considered, three cyclones and anticyclones separated by a relatively fast moving jet of fluid or "jet stream" are predicted. Two second order methods are compared with, first order spatial predictions, and experimental measurements. Velocity vector plots are used to illustrate the predicted flow structure. Computations made using second order central differences are shown to agree best with experimental measurements, and to be stable for integrations over long time periods (> 1000s). No periodic smoothing is required to prevent divergence.
