Finite volume schemes on staggered grids for gas dynamics

Abstract : The objective of this thesis is to develop a new numerical scheme of finite volume type for gas dynamics. In two articles, F.Berthelin, T.Goudon and S.Minjeaud propose to solve the barotropic Euler system in dimension 1 of space, with a first order scheme that works on staggered grids and of which fluxes are inspired by kinetic schemes. We propose to enhance this scheme so that it can solve the barotropic or complete Euler systems, in dimension 2 of space on Cartesian or unstructured grids, possibly at order 2 and at Low Mach numbers where appropriate. We begin with the development of a 2D version of the scheme on Cartesian (or MAC) grids, at order 2 via a MUSCL type method, for the barotropic equations at first and then for the complete equations. The latter require to handle with an additional energy equation and one of the -solved- problems is to find a suitable discrete definition of the total energy such that it satisfies a local conservative equation. In a third chapter we study the transition from the compressible case to the incompressible limit and we shall see how to use the advantages of our initial scheme in order to make it an Asymptotic Preserving scheme at low Mach numbers. In a fourth chapter we propose an adaptation of the scheme on unstructured meshes. Our approach is strongly inspired by the DDFV methods and may have advantages in low-Mach regimes.This thesis ends with a fifth chapter issued from a collaboration during CEMRACS 2017, where the considered point of view is no longer macroscopic but microscopic. We begin by studying a simplified micro/macro model with an added stochastic process and then we attempt to deduce a large-scale model for a strongly coupled system which has to be consistent with the underlying micro / macro description of the physical problem.
