Evaluation of a High-Accuracy MacCormack-Type Scheme Using Benchmark Problems Article (Web of Science)


  • Due to their inherent dissipation and stability, the MacCormack scheme and its variants have been widely used in the computation of unsteady flow and acoustic problems. However, these schemes require many points per wavelength in order to propagate waves with a reasonable amount of accuracy. Recently, much progress has been made in improving the wave propagation qualities of MacCormack-type schemes. In this work, the linear wave propagation characteristics of MacCormack-type schemes are compared using several of the CAA Benchmark Problems.
