Modeling Subgrid Viscosity for Advection--Diffusion Problems

Brezzi, Franco and Houston, P. and Marini, Donatella and Suli, Endre (1999) Modeling Subgrid Viscosity for Advection--Diffusion Problems. Technical Report. Unspecified. (Submitted)



We analyse the effect of the subgrid viscosity on a finite element discretisation, with piecewise linear elements, of a linear advection-diffusion scalar equation. We point out the importance of a proper tune-up of the viscosity coefficient, and we propose a heuristic method for obtaining reasonable values for it. The extension to more general problems is then hinted in the last section.
