A collocated finite-volume pressure correction procedure for the solution of inviscid
compressible flow at all speeds is presented.
Pressure correction methods usually
adopt a so-called Rhie-Chow interpolation for the cell face velocities in order
to provide pressure-velocity coupling.
However, as is shown on the testcase of a
one-dimensional transonic nozzle, this Rhie-Chow interpolation becomes highly
diffusive in high Mach number flows, resulting in an extreme smearing of the
Therefore we replace the Rhie-Chow interpolation for velocity and the
central interpolation for pressure by AUSM+ definitions.
This results in a much
sharper shock capturing, even with a first order scheme.
However, the diffusive
contributions of this flux scale badly when the Mach number diminishes.
