Abstract : The construction of compact high-order Residual Distribution schemes for the discretizationof steady multidimensional advection-diffusion problems on unstructuredgrids is presented. Linear and non-linear scheme are considered. A piecewise continuouspolynomial approximation of the solution is adopted and a gradient reconstructionprocedure is used in order to have a continuous representation of both thenumerical solution and its gradient. It is shown that the gradient must be reconstructedwith the same accuracy of the solution, otherwise the formal accuracy ofthe numerical scheme is lost in applications in which diffusive effects prevail overthe advective ones, and when advection and diffusion are equally important. Thenthe method is extended to systems of equations, with particular emphasis on theNavier-Stokes and RANS equations. The accuracy, efficiency, and robustness of theimplicit RD solver is demonstrated using a variety of challenging aerodynamic testproblems.
