Abstract Purpose The purpose of this paper is to apply the variational multi-scale framework to the finite element approximation of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations written in conservation form. Findings Subsonic and supersonic numerical experiments show that including the orthogonal, dynamic, and the non-linear subscales improve the accuracy of the compressible formulation.

We present some numerical tests with non-constant bottom, with the aim of showing, in practice, some of the advantages of the hydrostatic Stokes scheme Specifically, we exploit its flexibility for choosing different domains, which are approximated by standard finite element meshes not necessary structured. Convenient techniques, such as mesh adaptivity, are applied without additional difficulties.

Figures 13a and b show the meshes obtained after four solving plus mesh adaptation steps, using P2, P1 — P0 and P2, P1 — P1, respectively. Figures 13c-f show the velocity field and pressure isolines.

As we expected, both of them are, qualitatively, suitable results. Moreover, they agree with similar tests given in literature, where reduced integro-differential formulations in structured meshes are employed see. Specifically, two large vortices, one on each side of the interior mountain, are obtained, while pressure is constant in depth, increasing horizontally faster at the mountain peak of the bottom.

Note that pressure graphic for P2, Pi - Pi is better presents less oscillations than for P2, Pi - Po, needing the latter one a higher mesh refinement hence a higher computational effort. As counterpart, the velocity seems better for P2, Pi - P0. Note that, as predicted in Sect.

In fact, as reflected by Fig. Observe that one only vortex is obtained and extreme values ofpressure are concentrated near the "coast", where depth vanishes. Note also that it is not usual to find these kinds of experiments in literature, due to the difficulties presented by reduced integro-differential formulations when the domain has no talus. Siam J.

Jz J-D x The existence of weak solutions of was obtained in [19]. From this point of view, the original local hydrostatic Navier-Stokes problem has the advantage of allowing one to approximate by standard unstructured finite element meshes and to use a mesh adaptive tool. Theorem 3 The following statements are equivalent: 1. Proof We split the proof into four steps. Step 1. Rewriting the variational formulation Proof of the abstract inf-sup condition Step 3.

Proof of stability estimates Step 4. The reciprocal argument. Corollary 5 One has existence and uniqueness of solution of in W x P. Theorem 6 The following statements are equivalent: 1. Scheme 37 is well-posed in Xh. Proof Analogously to the first part of Lemma 1. Using that, it can be proved that P1,b, P1 — P0 is not Fig. Under some geometrical assumptions for the mesh family Th, a sufficient condition for P1,b, P1 — P1 to be Stokes-stable is [16]: Th can be covered by a family of macroelements, Mh, verifying the following conditions: 1.

The macroelements in Mh contain one only interior element. Oscillations can be observed in pressure but not in velocity Fig. References 1. Brezzi, F. Springer, New York 5. Academic Press, New York 7. Paris Srie I , 8. Ern, A. Springer, Berlin
