Unbounded Kinetic Energy in Forward-Euler Inviscid Flows

Observation When using a forward-Euler method for the time integration of the momentum equation for an inviscid-flow, it appears that the kinetic energy of the flow grows unbounded in time, regardless of the timestep size. Problem Statement Estimate the change in total kinetic energy when using forward-Euler to integrate the Euler momentum equations in a periodic box. Approach To …

Some Regex Notes

I happened to be dealing with a bunch of mallocs that look like this double* f =  (double*)malloc(sizeof(double)*nx*ny*nz); double* g = (double*)malloc(sizeof(double)*nx); double* h = (double*)malloc(sizeof(double)*nx*nz); I wanted to convert all of those those to use new, i.e. double* f = new double[nx*ny*nz] Using regex made all this possible search for: \(double\*\)malloc\(sizeof\(double\)\*(.*)\) replace with: new …
