Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


The central-difference Nessyahu–Tadmor (NT) scheme is considered, which is built using second-order MUSCL reconstruction of fluxes. The accuracy of the NT scheme is studied as applied to calculating shock waves propagating with a variable velocity. It is shown that this scheme has the first order of integral convergence on intervals with one of the boundaries lying in the region of influence of the shock wave. As a result, the local accuracy of the NT scheme is significantly reduced in these areas. Test calculations are presented that demonstrate these properties of the NT scheme.
