Multiwave is a library primarily designed for simulations of nonlinear first-order hyperbolic PDE systems. It is being developed at the IGPM, RWTH Aachen.

Characteristic Features

  • High order Runge-Kutta discontinuous Galerkin schemes up to 3D
  • Local multi-resolution based grid adaptation
  • Framework for coupling of PDE systems at a stationary interface
  • Viscous flows via lifting operators

Application Areas

  • Compressible Euler equations
  • Compressible Navier-Stokes equations
  • Shallow Water equations with bottom topography
  • Bothe-Dreyer equations
  • Fluid-structure interaction between linear elastic and compressible Euler equations
  • Coupling of compressible Euler equations via a turbine
