FD1D_ADVECTION_DIFFUSION_STEADY is a C program which applies the finite difference method to solve the steady advection diffusion equation v*ux-k*uxx=0 in one spatial dimension, with constant velocity v and diffusivity k, creating graphics files for processing by GNUPLOT.
We solve the steady constant-velocity advection diffusion equation in 1D,
v du/dx - k d^2u/dx^2over the interval:
0.0 <= x <= 1.0with boundary conditions
u(0) = 0, u(1) = 1.
We do this by discretizing the interval [0,1] into NX nodes. We write the boundary conditions at the first and last nodes. At the i-th interior node, we replace derivatives by differences:
The exact solution to this differential equation is known:
u = ( 1 - exp ( r * x ) ) / ( 1 - exp ( r ) )where r = v * l / k;
