Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

MacCormack's method is an explicit, second order finite difference scheme that is widely used in the solution of hyperbolic problems. Here, we consider MacCormack's method applied to the linear advection equation with nonlinear source term. Various features of the method are analysed. First, we show that the conventional implementation is not stable for Courant numbers close to one unless a small time-step is used.
